Back from China, I am richer in spirit and culture, full of impressive images of art, society, cities, people. One lasting impression that truly touched my heart was Peking Opera.There are museums and gardens, and pagodas, and Buddha sculptures, caligraphy and paintings in many places in China and the world but there is only one great theatrical event unique to Chinese Culture in history. And that is the beautiful Peking Opera.For now just two pictures, later on the videos.
My first trip to China starts today, the itinerary is Beijing, Dunhuang(Mogao caves), Xian, Luoyang(Longmen caves), Shanghai. Some of the Silk Road cities are a thrill for a first vacation in China. And because I will be away for three weeks I leave you with slideshows of Jordan 2008.
Below is a view of the treasury in Petra, the rock city of ancient Nabateans, that can be explored by foot, camel, horse or calesh. For a video that downloads rather slow visit my page Petra video.
