If you are looking for the ALL SEASONS post of this week (June 3-6), scroll down to the marine blue part, and click on the Seasons’ post listed!
Some years ago we decided to visit our son who had then been teaching English in China for a year. We figured this might be the only opportunity we would get, not knowing how long son would stay there (he did 4 more years).
Since traveling is a passion of all three, we did a crazy thing, and visited the mainland: East (Nanchang – 12 hrs. W. form Shang Hai, and Guang Zhou), South (Shen-zhen, across free China – Hong Kong) and North (Beijing) in a week, but we did go by plane .
Hotels are dirt cheap compared to Europe or America. More than once we took the taxi, since they’re cheap, and trains are kind of unreliable in their schedule.
This is the king’s bed (and his concubines) in the middle of a huge hall.
Suddenly realized in the background of my image are two DOORS.
Of course, the bed must have some doors too, but the Forbidden City
(the royal palaces in Beijing) is like the Louvre in France.
You walk for hours and hours, so in the long run
I was not as careful with my images.
Thurs. Doors, Weekend Reflection
One of the many marble separations (like fences) in the Forbidden City
(the royal palaces) in Beijing.

JUST A REMINDER – this blog is almost running out of space and I will move to The Jesh Studio
We did not see many flowers in China (not enough time).
The humidity there reminded me of the humid rain forest building
in the Huntington Library Gardens, where this flower was captured.

About the featured image – at the Great Wall was also the Jade factory. In China, jade is valued (sometimes) even more than gold . Many objects are made from Jade dust, because it is so costly. By the way, there is not only green jade, but also red jade.
ABC Wed. – Valued
While I painted in the streets of Beijing (yay) , hubby and son went to the
Great Wall. Many people there, but no weather for talking shots.
The wall was enveloped by fog the whole time, and at times drizzle,
which gave for 90% humidity.
