End of the Year

Fake beach with a view--$3 Anne and I got kicked out of the Marriott on a day off because a broken window's glass was blowing onto their pool deck. This is NOT the Marriott. Of course, the sun was behind clouds for the first time in a month....

Recycler with skills

When someone has a birthday party for their kid, they advertise--when you're only allowed one, it's special.

Chinglish garbage can. Also, this cool Lotus pond is in a park in the middle of the city. The people love the green.

I think this guy was selling this turtle for someone's soup. We took a 2 hr. train to see Nanjing's sights. One was an ex-leader's grave sight; up 300 stairs, after a 1/2 mile hike to the gate, which was closed, on a national holiday, and 500,000 others obviously thought it was open. We checked the web site, the paper, etc. beforehand. THIS is China!

This train could really move! And, here is the forbidden water, apparently. I took the photo at the top of a fountain. I think it's Chinglish for "Don't go in the water or else you could fall over the water fall and kill yourself, which of course would be your fault, so don't be stupid. You're in China."

The old meets the new all over the city. There is new construction 24/7.

This exit was looking like an entrance, but it headed down the hill away from the attraction. It's all very confusing at times.

See you soon!
