    Probably due to my lack of knowledge it appears I can’t comment on individual photos, such a shame! The traffic looks much like the traffic in this area. I endure this on a daily basis for my work commute. OK, I thought the smog was such an issue in Beijing – I see blue sky! As always, I love to read your blog even though we speak weekly. Your writing skills are exemplary – they truly carry me to your destination.

      Mom, I finally was able to scale the wall again via my Macbook. The photos have been updated with some explanation.And yes, we were both surprised how blue the sky was, but it seems it’s always better in the summer.
