This week’s photo journey is about my trip to China during March before the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Below are photos from the Qingdao portion of the trip!Chinese Monk at Temple

This monk above repeatedly told passerby’s to quiet down as we were in a Buddhist Temple in Qingdao. He was not amused by the tourists ignoring the “Silence” signs everywhere.
