mom's second visit


In July 2007, my Mom came to visit me in Wuxi.


We visited Suzhou.

(For more on the Old City and gardens, go to Suzhou)


And went on some outings.


Up the mountain,


for a view of the city, 


and then a visit to the zoo.


And had some fun.



We took the bullet train to Nanjing.




Stood on the banks of the mighty Changjiang (Yangtze river).


We visited the Sun Zhongshan moseleum.





And some other sites.



Back at home, mom tried her hand at English teaching.

The topic: making a western sandwich.




Then it was off to Beijing.



First was Tian'anmen square.



Then some shopping.


Then the Great Wall.



Some tea tasting.


Just a glance at the Birds Nest...


... and the Water Cube.


The Summer Palace 


With a South African lunch on the water.






In the city. 





In the hotel. 


East, west, home is best.
