Fragrant Hills


The Fragrant Hills are a quick trip by public bus away from our apartment in Beijing (if the traffic is light). The hills are famous for their Fall colors, and they get terribly crowded when the leaves start to change. Luckily, we were there a little before that.

The amazing mimosa II37 views...and here is the after: see how the one set of leaves has completely folded up and is now just a skinny stick? They fold up instantly on contact, and apparently re-open about half an hour later. The little purple bursts are the mimosa flowers.mudmine

Pingyao street scene52 viewsKind of like Philadelphia, which has a lot of colonial architecture because the city was too poor to demolish it when it became unfashionable, Pingyao has remarkably well-preserved neighborhoods and buildings from the late imperial period. It also has a complete city wall, built in the days when its wealthy residents were looking for ways to protect themselves and their possessions.mudmine

Gates of Cuc Phuong's Primate Research Center39 viewsThe Endangered Primate Research center houses a bunch of langurs and gibbons, many of which were rescued or confiscated from hunters. All of the researchers are foreign-- I think it's mostly a German-run outfit.mudmine

Empress Dowager Cixi's Marble steamboat35 viewsAs you can see, the marble boat features side-paddles and, perhaps, some sort of marble steam engine as well. Thus, in frittering away the navy's modernization money on this marble monstronsity, the Empress may have at least complied with the letter of the law used to raise the modernization funds, if not its spirit.mudmine
