Happy Chinese New Year!

 Back in 2007 I was fortunate enough to spend Chinese New Year in Beijing!
 This was the entrance to the Marco Polo Bridge
 Here we are on the Lugou Bridge aka Marco Polo Bridge in English.
 There were hundreds of stone lions on the bridge and they were all different.

 A typical old style building here
 Decorations for New Years
 Entering the The Tanzhe Temple in the hills, one of the oldest temples in Beijing.
 Very old buildings, around 1700 years.

 These trees were planted almost 1000 years ago!
It was a great day!
