Beijing Again

I’m back in Suzhou after my third, and favorite, visit to Beijing. More about that later. For now, here’s proof that we climbed a section of the Great Wall on a blustery yet clear and pollution-free summer’s day. I promise to make my next post writing related (since I owe you a review of The Taming of the Duke from a male perspective), but here’s a romantic detail for you. My partner and I have taken photos of our hands every May since our first year together. This is the eighth photo and the second one in China.

  1. Very romantic! :?) And, welcome back. I’ve been meaning to check in, but I know you’re still getting caught up. How is das book? I’m up to about 20K words now, so it’s cooking along — can’t wait to get back on a regular schedule w/you again. :?)

  2. Erica- have you been to Beijing? I highly recommend it.

    Kerry-das book is simmering on low heat while I squire family and friends around China. But I’m glad to hear yours is cooking.

    Maggie-this is actually the first time I’ve ever really told anyone about the hand pictures. It’s sort of a private tradition, and we’ve never collected or displayed them. But after eight years, maybe it’s time.

    Tessa & Ericka- so nice to see you, as always.

    Huar- Trichomaniac is in Haines!

    Jill- sorry you can’t see the pic–I made it as small as possible.

  3. Nope, haven’t been to Beijing. There’s a gaping hole on my passport where Asia stamps should be! Am hoping to rectify that in 2008… Assuming I can save up frequent flyer miles! =)
