BOOM! Here we are hangin’ with the Chinese in Beijing, the capital city of China. The Summer Palace and the Temple of Heaven are two of my favorite sights to check out here. Both of these structures are hundreds of years old. . .the Temple of Heaven complex was completed around the year 1420, and the Summer Palace complex opened around 1750 or so. . .mmmm, aaaaahh, I can feel the history and vibes of the emperors who have trod these grounds many times over the centuries. . .and now commoners and gringos like me are allowed to traipse around just about anywhere that we like. . .as long as we behave.
These structures are hearty and strong just like the people who built them. Above you see a good example of one these hearty and strong Chinese dudes. . .give them respect, and they give nothing but respect in return. I love hangin’ in Beijing and chillin’ with the Chinese, and I know that you will too if you ever find yourself visiting the capital of the oldest civilization on Earth. Hao-hao!
I send you substantial vibes from Beijing. . .feel them. . .they ain’t goin’ nowhere.
