Better in Black and White

More photos from a wet Summer Palace in Beijing.

The covered walkway around Kunming Lake was crowded with tourists trying to avoid the rain.

The rain had mostly stopped when we arrived at another part of the lake.  This is a concrete boat.  I don't know anything more about it than that; I had probably wandered away from our guide to take pictures.

The Chinese family posing in front of the concrete boat had just invited the non-Chinese lady in the background to join their photo session.  This happened a lot in China, but usually to older people, blondes and those with white hair.
