The Temple of Heaven

Sorry for the delay getting blog posts up. Apparently, the Chinese Internet does not allow direct access to blog website as a way to control what may be posted. Anyway -- we will do our best to update through back channels.

We visited the wonderful Temple of Heaven in Beijing. This place is THREE times bigger than The Forbidden City and here is where you can see hundreds o f people doing Tai Chi on the plaza; practicing calligraphy (using water) on the ground and large numbers of people walking, dancing, exercising, playing cards and checkers etc. - just relaxing and having a nice time. The culmination is the beautiful "Temple of the Good Harvest" which I hope to post a picture of as soon as I can.
