"Rudy's been to Canada!"59 viewsThis might be my favorite picture from China yet. These kids were part of a huge herd from their school, waiting in a disorderly line to be let in small batches into the large maze that is one of the few things at Yuanmingyuan not in ruins. Seeing some foreigners standing quite near them, one of them offered me a small piece of candy, and then the girl with the tissue in her nose barged up to inform Hilary in excited Chinese that the kid on the left had been to Canada, a fact that he seemed kind of reluctant to own up to. Typical kid stuff, but this picture makes me laugh everytime I look at it. mudmine

Chapel exterior, Great Meteoron monastery35 viewsInside the chapel was amazing. The first chambers featured gruesome frescoes of the hellish tortures endured by various saints as they tried to spread the gospel. Beneath the dome, however, the them of the paintings changed to the miracles of Christ and heavenly rewards of faith. Alas, no photos were allowed.mudmine
