On my last night in the city, I walk past the northeast corner of the Forbidden City and bid a silent farewell to Beijing, China.
A Chinese dance troupe performs in the streets of the ancient city of Pingyao, China.
Walking along the old city wall in Xian, China, is almost a park-like experience with some people taking a stroll, others walking the dog or going for a jog.
Surrounded by a whirlwind of traffic, even the pedestrian signal isn’t much help when crossing the street to the Drum Tower in Beijing, China.
After having been dropped off at the bus stop in an empty lot some distance outside of town, I was glad to see that I had walked in the right direction to Wudangshan, China.
Arriving early in Beijing, China, with plenty of free time, I take a morning stroll around Shicha Lake and explore the surrounding hutong alleyways.
A statute of six horses with a chariot stands over a site where the horses of an ancient emperor were sacrificed and buried with his chariot in Luoyang, China.
That’s a statute of a snake sitting on top of a turtle swimming in a canal up in the mountain of Wudangshan in the middle of China.
After an overnight train ride, I make my way to the ancient city of Pingyao, China, as the sun rises behind the old city walls.
After an hour-long climb up the mountain, this is a better view of the Bodhidharma statue than if I stayed down in the valley and looked through one of the telescopes at the Shaolin Temple, Songshan, China.
