Mao's mausoleum with very serious guards looking very displeased with the lack of revolutionary fervour in the new generation. Hooray and hooray to Chairman Mao!

Red flags on Tiananmen Square. Guard against atom, against chemistry, and against bacteria!

I wore my red shirt for just such an occassion. The People's Liberation Army was founded by giant Chairman Mao personally.

These are the Austrian guys we got ragingly drunk with. But the important thing in this picture is what we got drunk off of. It's a bit blurry, but you can see the snake and lizard alcohol jars in the middle.

We gave this guy some money, but we don't think he saw us doing it. We almost had a George Costanza moment.

This is in 798, the art district. Much different vibe from Tiananmen Square.

Ummm...the three boats, to go with our fish windsocks...

the two stone faces in Thailand (I think that's where it was taken...)

The water in the tops of the bamboo...

The moss growing on the stone...

And the sun peeking through in the woods.

We're going to get a special matting for some of your kyudo/tea ceremony pics. :)

Only we wouldn't have had the language ability to at least try to cover up our mis-doing.

How true. I think that would only make it even more of a George Constanza moment.

I was wondering what had happened to your grammar.

I like that black and white picture of you drinking. The girl in the back reminds me of the movie The Grudge where that Japanese girl followed Bill Pullman around and managed to get into every single one of his pictures.
