Between exploring the Forbidden City and climbing the Great Wall of China, I've hardly had time to write. Wow! There's a sentence I'd never imagined typing. I'll try to fill you in after our performance at the Forbidden City Concert Hall tonight. In the meantime, my friends Carl and Mickey have a wonderfully detailed and funny blog about the trip you can read. (A reader put a link in another post.)
Here are more postcards from the Rochester Oratorio Society singers and family members.
"After six days in Beijing, what's the most unusual thing you've seen?"
"I think the park [the Temple of Heaven] was really neat because there was this Chinese woman playing an instrument and another woman came up and tried to sing. She couldn't really sing, but they were having a lot of fun anyway." - Linda
"I know! The nice silverware on Day Two that said 'Made in the USA.'" (Suzie) and "The water clock that we saw was the most interesting." (Suzie's dad, Bob)
"Oh my gosh! There are so many things! I think being served cheeseburgers from McDonald's as a snack!" - Pam
"I'm impressed by the elaborateness of the pagodas and how the patterns are repeated over and over again. They struck me as embroidered buildings." - Kathy
