A Chinese Christmas tree?

Check this out. These are all over Beijing. It looks like a Christmas tree, doesn't it, with the alternating bands of green and red.

What is it really? A whole lot of plants in pots, artfully arranged inside a metal frame to resemble a tree. They are everywhere. It's a nice illusion. And it's also a little symbolic of China. They don't just plant a tree and be done with it -- they do something like this instead. It's sometimes more about how things appear -- than how they really are -- in China. Here are some more of my thoughts on that concept.

Well, what can I say? I've been there twice and you know what? I just love it, everything is beautiful, even their women. Beijing is renowned for its opulent palaces, temples, and huge stone walls and gates. Its art treasures and universities have long made the city a center of culture and art in China, and you'd add some pictures about that palaces. 23jj
