Beijing adventure

The Hall of Prayer for Good Harvest at the Temple of Heaven in Beijing
On our trip to China with the University of Maryland Community Band, we saw many amazing sights, including the Temple of Heaven. There, we visited the Hall of Prayer for Good Harvest, seen in the picture above. Its rich painted wood stood in stark contrast with the hazy sky.

One treat of watching the Summer Olympic Games on television was the chance to revisit the very sites we had seen in person just one month prior. What a treat to have our own pictures instead of relying on those from the TV!
