Open the Chinese Red cover of the Beijing City card to see a 3D cityscape of Beijing skyline.
The dignified and opulent city of Beijing has long captured imaginations with its forbidden palaces, emperors and exotic food, wrapped in a history of intrigue and misery.
In the front of the buildings are actors of the Peking Opera. The woman is ioulently dressed, her hair elaborately coiffed, she is the Empress. The man wears an has a fearsome expression and beard. Like Japanese kabuki, all the actors, even those playing female roles, are male. Most Peking Opera stories come from Chinese history and legends.
All the famous buildings if Beijing City are shown, including the Forbidden City, the Temple of Heaven, Tiananmen Square, CCTV Broadcast Station and the China World Trade Center Tower II. Behind them are the Olympic “Bird Nest” Stadium, Soho Shopping Center, and in the back, the Great Wall of China.
This is a card for a historian, a traveler, a political scientist, international businessman, a professor, architect, for birthdays, celebration and vacation.
A man grows most tired while standing still.
Dig the well before you are thirsty.
When the winds of change blow, some people build walls and others build windmills.
He who asks a question is a fool for five minutes; he who does not ask a question remains a fool forever.”
What you do not wish for yourself, do not do to others. ~ Confucius
Wheresoever you go, go with all your heart.
The journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step.
To talk much and arrive nowhere is the same as climbing a tree to catch a fish.
