Too Many #Bicycles?

The #bike faze in #Beijing is a little crazy right now.  Never thought you could overdo bicycles, but #Peking might have just managed it.  There is NO sidewalk – Everywhere you are banging your knees! 😡

Gateway to Your Heritage

I ❤ #China!  Driving down the street, ran across this gorgeous old #gate.  So beautiful!

#Tigger!

Holy tigger,  I love this – Our university art students are encouraged to paint the man holes aroind campus as projects. This one showed up today! ❤

Highlighting History, Shadowing Mystery

Found this while wandering down Tianzifang in Shanghai. Tianzifang is a maze of buildings in the old French Concession area.

Did you ever read one of the old books where someone got lost in the streets of China?  Going farther and farther back into the twisting buildings built one overlapping the other, up and up and up.  And below it all, the stranger moves deeper into an under-land of small one room stores and little, elderly artists and laborers selling their services?  Tianzifang is one of the magical places, full of mystery, history, and a touch of the mystical.
