What do you do when your picture software decides that it needs an update and you can’t download the pictures from your camera?
You dig back into your archives.
Yesterday I wrote about upcoming trips to China and South Africa. Because of this I have been thinking of another trip that I took at the end of 2001. Shortly after returning from South Africa I took a trip to Shanghai and Beijing. This year I will visit Shanghai and Johannesburg in reverse order.
Since I have been thinking of these trips I will share a few pictures from the Forbidden City in Beijing.
The pictures in this post were all taken with an early digital camera that saved images to a floppy disk. Therefore, not too much resolution 🙂
There are many long passageways like this throughout the complex with red walls on both sides.
Here you can see one of the grand stairways in the complex.
It was fun to imagine what it would have been like in the Ming dynasty in the 1600’s.
Someday I want to again go to Beijing and visit the Forbidden City.
For now I have some good memories.
