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.

At the beach, Hoi An69 viewsSaleslady looks on uncomfortably as Christine prepares to eat an Asian pear browned by the refrigerator. It really stressed out the snack ladies on the beach to see us eat this pear with its ugly brown insides, and they tried strenuously to talk us out of it and save us from the inevitable stomachache that would follow. This particular snack saleswoman, by the way, had teeth completely blackened from betel nut. Apparently a lot of old people in the Vietnamese countryside chew betel nut, a stimulant. The black coating it gives their teeth is even supposed to have a protective function!mudmine
Pingyao city wall41 viewsPingyao has cottoned on to the fact that its city wall is very attractive to tourists from far and near. Most of the old stairways leading up to the wall are locked up, and they sell tickets for the (in China) exorbitant price of 120 yuan apiece to ascend at one of the main gates.mudmine
