Further Along the Central Axis at the Ming Tombs

Going Back to China?

I’m honestly a little worried that I might not be allowed back into China. I don’t think they like me much there after my quadcopter incident. I have not been formally kicked out of the country, but I don’t know if there is a formal process for that anyway! I guess I would find out if I apply for a visa and it is denied. Well, we’ll see what happens… I’ll keep my fingers crossed!

Daily Photo – Further Along the Central Axis at the Ming Tombs

Yesterday I mentioned the central axis in Beijing, the spiritual line that goes straight through the ancient city. There are all kinds of interesting monuments and things to visit along this axis, but very very far north are the Ming Tombs. These things are spread out and require a lot of walking, but the walks are quite beautiful. It's strange to be in such a tight congested city but then have these massive swaths of open areas. Hardly anyone ever comes to these places, so there is plenty of solitude, which is a welcome respite from the chaos of the rest of Beijing!

    Actually Trey, you will probably get a visa, but may be denied at the border post. That is the way it normally happens. But I doubt it. I don’t think they will see you as a threat.

  • Thanks – that is good to know! 🙂
