Tian An Men Square

Tourists at Tian An Men Square

This picture is one of our favorites. We had just arrived at Tian An Men Square. It was cold, and windy, and full of Chinese tourists visiting their capital. We were near the edge of our tour group gathered around the guide who was giving information. These women couldn't speak English, but they signaled that they wanted to take our picture. We were delighted. Then as I took their picture with Owen, the lady thrust her camera at me to take their picture with Owen with her camera. We found the Chinese people so friendly. Often we couldn't speak the same language, but communication took place anyway. (04/23/01)
