CHINA

 


The Wall

There's quite a hike (in prices) at the The Great Wall. I found gift stands, camel rides, a cable tram that connects tourists in the parking lot with the tourists at the top. Then, let the Great Wall Roller Coaster (not recommended by the tour guide) guide you back to the parking lot ......


The Crowd

People wanting to see whatever is happening on the other side of the blue line.......


The Cheerleaders

These nice Chinese girls said Cheese.....


The Food

Here's a platter of 'smoked chicken'


The Pearl T.V. Tower

Shanghai's own Pearl Tower, one of the tallest human-made structures in the world.......


The Space Module

The water in the 350 meter toilet bowl was amazingly still.......


Jim Mao Tower

The water in the 350 meter toilet bowl was amazingly still.......


The Space Module

The water in the 350 meter toilet bowl was amazingly still.......


The DEATH MOBILE

Getting around town couldn't be more convenient than riding in a three wheeled Chinese Death Mobile. The driver, Mr. Chang will take you and anything you can stuff anywhere you want for just a buck........


The Other Walls

They can be seen from within about one mile of space.......


The Statue outside MAO's Gravesite

Just outside Mao's tomb, guarded by special tourist police in the roped off area behind the red line.......


More Walls

A relaxing spot next to the edge.......


Friends

These guys are the greatest! Employees of the Peoples Hospital of Rizhao, a fine institution serving a community of 2.8 million people. I'll never forget the high speed thrill ride Mr. Moo (in black) gave me on a tour of the city, or the tour of the great peoples hospital .......


The Soldiers

In the ground until discovered by a farmer digging a well. The farmer has since learned how to write his name which has enabled him to sign his name on his new book entitled, " recent discoveries of even more buried soldiers, Part VI"


MAO

A southern entrance to the Forbidden City in Beiging, that just happens to have the biggest picture of Chairman Mao in town.......


The Circus

This Chinese Acrobat did his act suspended over the stage on 50 feet of loose rope. During the intermission, he was working the crowd with some CD's....


Chinese friends

These are friendly people a doctor at the Peoples Hospital of Rizhao and her daughter.......


The BEER

Just give me a ching dow.......


The BUMS

See some of my friends at night in Shanghai.......


The Forbidden City

The city is free, but little red flag costs one Yuan.......


The ARMY

Just messing with the lineup of these Chinese Soldiers to get a photo.........
