China and Tibet July 2007

Traveling to China July 17 - August 4, 2007, Marilyn observed glorious Buddhist Monks in their glorious yellow robes in the glorious Muslim Mosque. Then off by bus miles and miles across China, then up, up and up to observe the prayer flags and lovely fields of yellow Canola. We were told that the entire area is 1/3 Chinese, 1/3 Muslim, and 1/3 Buddhist who all live together in the mountains and along the mighty rivers in peace!!!
Up up up to Lhasa, Tibet. Potala Palace, Jokang Temple, Sala Monastery - awesome. Back to Beijing, visited Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, Military Museum.
Time for HOME.

Note from daughter Chris: the above are Mom's notes from her trip. I believe this is the Iron Rooster trip with Keren Su of China Span. There is video somewhere. I'll find it!
