Ok, OK ... Here They Are Already!

I've been a little distracted lately and have been slow in processing my pictures from our latest adventure in Asia.  Based on the number of requests to see them, this delay appears to be irritating a lot of people.

I usually only post pictures with the written posts but the number of request has convinced me to handle it different this time.  I have gone through all of our China pictures (Nepal, Bhutan, and India have yet to be gone through) and have posted them to my Google Photos account.  Here is a small sample of the pictures I took.  I reserve the right to reuse them to illustrate any future posts.

Shanghai at night.  The lights and the fog/smog/haze reminds me of the movie Bladerunner.
Cruising up the Yangtze river on the Yangtze Explorer.
The Potala Palace in Lhasa, Tibet.
A Giant Panda at the "Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding".
Terracotta Army in Xi'an.
The famous picture of Chairman Mao on the south gate of the Forbidden City seen from Tiananmen Square.
The outside of the Forbidden City seen from across the moat.
Up the stairs on the Great Wall of China.
We nearly had this whole section to ourselves.
I've upload 295 pictures I took in China, a representative sample of the 2,102 pictures I took in China and Tibet.  You can see these in my 2012-06 China Google Photos album.

I hope to start posting about the trip sometime  next week.
