Beijing Miscellany :-)
I forgot to post these photos with the group of shots that appear later, from the hikes Steve and I took in the mountains to the north of Beijing. They’re sort of “miscellany” from his last weekend here, when we spent a lovely day at the Summer Palace. My hope is that Steve remembers some of the beauty of the grounds and buildings there, as much as or more than he remembers the dreadful pollution of the day! Those who’ve been watching my blog know how much I love the details and and paintings on roofs and ceilings of many traditional Chinese buildings — hope you enjoy the ceiling-painting shot as much as I do.
