~~~Second Day~~~

May 20th, this is the second day that we are in Beijing city. With a nice and sticky lovely morning call, we are going out with the same time as yesterday. The “Summer Palace” is the first places we are go to visit. It’s three times bigger than Forbidden City, I heard from Lisa. There is a huge lake in the summer palace. I imaging maybe as huge as UMD. One of the most interesting find that I love in the summer palace is a show of professional painting by some Chinese professor. Those painting are very shooting me up, I watch it and I just want to take it away! I love art in personal and I got art design as my minor. Looking at those professional painting gives me a though that painting can be create by this way.
this is summer palace,

the upper two painting are neat~!

i remember i saw this guy's painting before, but i just cannot get his name out of my mind

this painting would be my favorite, use very simple like to create woman's texture, couple line makes the painting alive. it looks so ~~~! if i got money, i will go for and buy it!

I am moving very quick. So we are after lunch by now. Next place is Bird’s Nest, where the Olympus ceremony takes place in china last year. This building would be my one of favorite. Bu just looking at the design, I cannot imagine how those guy build up a building like this. As you go inside the Bird’s Nest, it is other huge place that I have see for today so far. It is fun to see, and we play some out door sport today, so nice! And the water cube is good, but we do not get a chance to look inside. That is sad.

Then, we go to a tea house, it is a cool place. Those lady makes free sample tea for us to taste, and teach us to drink a typical tea with a typical way. Also we go to sew house, I just fell that sew is so comfortable, and I buy a very special type for one of my high school teach.
