We had a lovely time hosting Jeanette here in Chengdu and I hope that she enjoyed herself. I know it was definitely a cultural experience of a lifetime and not exactly for the unadventurous types. I have a few photos of our tour of one of the Daoist temples called Qing Yang Gong. Daoism is based on having balance in one's life. Feng Shui is based on Daoism teachings and that is where we get the Ying and Yang.
This is probably my most favorite picture I have ever taken. I think I will get it blown up. When I asked this man if Gemma could have a picture with him he sat up so proud and posed for us. Gemma was really intrigued by this interesting and very cute old man.
Jeanette's with a Daoist monk.
(Here is my first attempt of posting video!)
Inside the temple was a shop with Chinese musical instruments. Here is a girl playing the Chinese piano.
Gemma observing a card game. This is probably the 2nd most favorite game for the locals.
We hope that you enjoyed our pictures of Jeanette's trip and I hope they encourage you to visit us! We already have about 5 people signed up for next year, but would love to have more people.
