If you would be a
real seeker after truth,
it is necessary that
at least once in your life
you doubt, as far as possible, all things.
Rene Descartes (1596 - 1650)

Travel Index:

Beijing, China,
November 16 - 30, 1999

Imperial Palace, Confucius Temple, Ming Tombs, Buddhist temples

Of course November is not the ideal time to tour a northern garden. The Summer Palace is huge, and includes more temples, residences, a covered, open-air walkway with a thousand paintings, a lake, a royal "shopping district", and even a marble boat. The bus takes about 45 minutes, and a wandering tour a couple days. I ran out of battery power for pictures, but the first page photo is from there.
