Love Chinese Architecture

We also climbed the Linggu Pagoda while we were on Purple Mountain in Nanjing. What a picturesque pagoda. It was fun climbing the stairs. The interior was painted flamboyantly. It was there that I learned my Chinese numbers 1-10, including hand symbols. Some of our Chinese friends were so kind to teach us a number each flight of stairs/floor.

Mountain Top Tourist

The first place we toured in Nanjing was Purple Mountain. We went to Dr. Sun Yatsen's Mausoleum. It was quite the complex of buildings and stairs. Very beautiful and impressive. Very popular tourist site.

Art, Art, Art

The first place we toured in China was the Shanghai Expo. I really like it because there were lots of paintings and lots of culture there. I loved the design of the building. What a piece of art itself!

Charleston, SC

Not too long ago Anthony and I went away to Charleston for a weekend. We had a lot of fun. It's been nice to get some local travel in as well as world travel, i.e. China before our baby arrives in October.

Lancaster County, PA

My husband and I recently went to see family in Pennsylvania. A trip to PA is hardly complete without viewing all the gorgeous rolling hills, farms, and silos of Lancaster County.
