Back from China!




Well, I have returned from China! No time to write tonight, but here are a few pictures for your enjoyment. The top photo is the National Library of China (I'm a librarian, what can I say?). The next picture was taken at the top of a mountain. Don't worry, I didn't "cleap" over the edge or anything (gotta love Chinese signs translated into English). And lastly, the Great Wall - an amazing and very breathtaking sight (breathtaking for more than one reason - it's beautiful but also rather terrifying for people who do not like heights).

Ooohhh...pretty! I love the "cleaping" sign, and I can totally picture you quivering atop the Great Wall. : ) If you got to go inside the library, what was it like? Very modern with lots of new technology, or rather old school?

Gotta love the Engrish.

Welcome back.

Glad you're back! Love the pics, and can't wait to hear more about the trip.

Liz - The library was very much like the libraries in the States. I could go inside in the atrium but I couldn't get in any of the stacks (needed a library card for that). I posted a picture of the cool reading area on my flickr page. I'll be posting more pictures online somewhere at some point....

Nye - I wish I had taken more pictures of the Engrish over there, but sadly that is the only one I have. It's pretty funny stuff!

Stacy - Will tell you about the trip soon! China is an awesome place to visit but I wouldn't want to live there. :)
