After I joined the tour in Beijing, we went to several
sites: the summer palace, with its attractive paintings
that, being exposed to the elements, require frequent attention

always, of course, really a lot of people,
here a friendly work group,

at the lama temple, lighting incense

a marble boat, meant to symbolise the unsinkable state,
absolutely dead ugly..

the great wall, 

they looked quite difficult hills, without the wall,
at Mutian

the very wet first day

one of the crazy rocks at the summer palace,
atop a beautifully carved stone

& something I really appreciated, an artist painting
flawless strokes, with water..
