A series of eleven montage of photos taken with a digital camera on my trip to Beijing November 1999. I went both for my "summer" vacation as well as to pursue two projects. I furthered work on the Chinese translations of "Study Guides" and continued research on Gypsy/Roma immigration into China in the 12th Century, about the same time they emigrated out of northwestern India into Eastern Europe.
The two weeks were plenty to visit friends, a local park, temples, palaces, Tiananmen Square, the summer palace, the Peking Opera, Peking University, the University of International Business and Economics (my hosts), the Great Wall, and to just walk the streets and be part of the scene. Of course, my travel is not a one way street, and I enjoyed being known as well as knowing.
