Forbidden Kung Fu

In Beijing I joined up with a small group tour.  The tour lasted 3 weeks and took us from Beijing to St. Petersburg.  There were 14 other people on the tour, plus the tour leader.  It was a really fun group and I had a great time.  There were lot of well-travelled people on the tour and a few had been to a lot more countries than I have.
Beijing is an interesting city to visit.  There is a lot to see and do.  The pollution in Beijing is really bad,  though.  There was a lot of smog around.

The weather was bad when we went to the Great Wall, so we couldn’t see that much of it.

I also went to a tourist kung fu acrobatics show.  That was fun to watch.

Have fun,

  1. I hope no one developed respiratory conditions while traveling through China.

    I wonder how the kung fu acrobats compared to the ninjas?

    The air wasn’t that bad that anyone had problems.
    The ninja show I saw in Japan wasn’t as elaborate or as long as the kung fu show in China.
