Photos of China.

These are a little late in being posted. As all of you who read my other journal know I visited China in November/December last year. It was very cold, below freezing in fact, but very beautiful. I went to Shanghai, Beijing and Xian. We visited the Great Wall of China, the Terracotta Army, saw a performance at the Peking opera, visited the Summer Palace, Tiannemen Square, the Wild Goose Pagoda, the Temple of Heaven, the Ming Tombs and more Buddhist temples than you could shake a stick at!
I've added some photos above. I took over 1,500 but I'll let you off seeing all of them!
I hope you like the selection I picked out to show you, I'm surprised AOL would download them, so many of you have been having trouble getting the pics on journals recently.

The photos are wonderful. I love the artwork. Yes, I have heard there are so many temples. In fact, I've seen pictures of perhaps hundreds. Just beautiful.

I remember many of those shots from your other journal.  Such a wonderful trip, I'm glad you have all those photos to remember it by.  1,500...wow, I only shoot about 2,000 a year, you did nearly that on one vacation.

Beautiful pictures. I lived in Hong Kong for a few years and was fortunate enough to travel to the mainland. I've never been to Beijing in the winter. Thanks for sharing your trip with us.

For some strange reason, I can't see your latest pictures. All the others are clearly visible. Very odd!
