The photo you see is recorded as the biggest traffic jam of all time in the whole world. The event happened in Beijing, China in 2010 when traffic was stuck for almost 20 days.

(my photo). 16 days in China started in Beijing during our adoption trip. China was rich in culture and history, and its people were to be admired.
