the Middle Kingdom to find what's ancient in a modern land

China, Where I Lived for Eleven Years

Because I lived most of my eleven years in Shenzhen, most of what you'll see here is from Guangdong (Shenzhen mostly, and Guangzhou, and Shaoguan…) I spent a year in Yangzhou, Jiangsu (with not much to show for it considering); a week in a mountain-top temple in Futian; and a day each in Wuhan, Xi'an, and Chongqing. When I first wrote this, I said, "I'll let you know if and when I ever get to Beijing, Shanghai, Tibet, the rest of Xi'an…" But in fact--though I never made it to Tibet--I visiited nearly a hundred cities in China. You can see them on my The Temple Guy pages.
