Jeremiah Jenne on his amazing walking tour

 

I had to go literal with this one because Jeremiah Jenne leads the best walking tours in Beijing. I’ve been on four of them. This was the most recent one at the Temple of Heaven.

Matteo Ricci

Winter 2016 493

A new statue outside the South Cathedral. Ricci was a Jesuit priest, who came to China in the 16th century. He and his fellow Jesuits got in trouble because they tried to learn about and adopt the local culture so well. Rome at the time didn’t like that.

January Theme Day: Photo of the Year

DSCN5401

January’s theme for City Daily Photo bloggers is “Best Photo of the Year.” So I’ve gone through my files and chosen the photo above. I wouldn’t say this is a masterful photo. I chose it because politics has shifted considerably in China in 2015. My students evoke both Mao and President Xi a lot more frequently and with more reverence. Dissent is silenced so I’m not sure how pervasive these feelings really are, but it does seem that the Chinese are revelling in these strong men.
