Time for another old photo post. This one was taken in 2002, so it isn’t actually that old. But it’s one of my favorites, so I thought I’d share it. The view is from from the temple at the top of Longevity Hill, situated on the northern shore of Kunming Lake inside the Summer Palace grounds in Beijing. It is facing west towards the Fragrant Hills. This is a 20 minute bike ride from where I live.
Consider it proof that we do, on occasion, have gorgeous days in Beijing!
