Learning A Little Tai-Chi

While enjoying a much needed day off, I visited the historic Beijing Hutongs - the original homes of military and civil officers from 2 dynasties. I paid the extra money for a translated/guided tour of the neighborhood via rickshaw, and it was well worth the extra price.

Here, I am getting my first and only mini-lesson in Tai-Chi. Yes, I felt a little silly making the various poses...




While on the tour of the Hutongs, the rickshaw driver favored me with a small taste of Chinese opera...
