In front of Wanhua Chamber, there are two old trees. One is a maidenhair tree which is 21 meters tall (about 70 feet). It is said that the tree was planted 400 years ago. It has seen demise of the last emperor, birth and death of Mao Ze Dong, Cultural Revolution, Gang of Four and arrival of capitalism to China. With any luck it will be there for another four hundred.

“My favorite thing is to go where I've never been.”… Diane Arbus
TRAVEL is my passion and my lifelong dream is to see the whole WORLD…one country at the time. See the manmade landmarks and the natural beauty of the landscape, flora and fauna. Meet people and get to know their culture, language and lifestyle. Learn about the history, traditions, religion and ancestors of their land. Make new friendships; promote peace, kindness and understanding… I am not sure if I will be able to visit all countries of the world, but I will certainly try. So far I have been blessed to travel quite a bit, which profoundly enriched my personal life and deeply influenced all forms of my art.
