故宮的夕陽 A sunset in the Forbidden City




明十三陵 – 這是於皇帝成祖朱棣和皇后徐氏的合葬陵寢。他們就埋葬在此。
我經常聽到別人說中國人的一個習慣,當進入陵墓,你需要說“我來了!”,
當你走時,你要說,“我回來了! ”。如果你不這樣做,
你的靈魂就不會返回你身體,它仍然在陵墓裡。
如果你問我,我會覺得有點嚇人,所以我沒有花太久在這裡!

Ming Tombs – The tombs are mausoleums belonging to Emperor and Empress Xu Zu Zhu Di.
It’s where they’re buried. I have often heard that it is customary among the Chinese,
that when entering a tomb, you to need say "Here I come!” When you exit, you say,
 "I'm back! ". If you don’t, your soul won’t come back to you- it remains in the tomb.
 A bit scary if you ask me, so I didn’t spend too long here!

故宮(紫禁城) - 故宮是一個龐大,宏偉的地方!建造它時一定是一個艱鉅的任務。
在這四圍參觀,每處都好像走不完,永遠都看不完!房間和通道都是無窮無盡的。
我花了一天,我仍然沒法看完所有展品!在結束參觀這一切時,基本上已是關門的時間,
我已很累了...這麼多東西可以看。當我們離開這裡時,已是黃昏時分。

The Forbidden City - The Imperial Palace is an immense and huge place!
It had to have been a huge undertaking when it was constructed. Walking around it,
everything just seemed to go on forever and ever! The rooms and walkways were just endless.
 I spent a day there and I still didn’t get to see everything! At the end of it all
and basically that was at closing time, I was exhausted…so many things to see.
 When we left there, was already dusked.

  2. I agree with you Kay, the sky there is really blue,
    I think is because Beijing have a effective control of polution,
    before the Olympic games.
    Was quite cold there, there was some nights under -10C.
    When I was walking and taking pictures around the bird nest and water cube stadium,
    I felt freezing! @_@

  4. Thanks lechua, I used many composition to take the sunset...
    I'm glad you appreciate the pix.
    Your're right, have a white gate after the main entrance of Ming Tombs,
    people need to say "Here I come!"
    and leave with "I'm back".
    Of course I said it and with mandarim,
    because I scared my soul won't came back, haha... ^.^
