The Ming Tombs and Sacred Way

We hired a driver for the day and took in a bunch of sites around Beijing, one of them being the Ming Tombs and the Sacred Way. I was going to ramble on about what the Ming Tombs are all about, but I took a photo instead:

Because Geoff and I had to tag-team our tomb visit, I took pictures of a willing subject while I waited for Geoff to come back (notice the drool on her front – not sure if she’s started teething or if she just likes dribbling):
