    Yitshak, The Tower, and Yours truly.

    June, 1994. Traveled from Nanjing through Yangzhou, Wuxi, Suzhou, and Shanghai and finally arrived at Beijing by train.

    On the way, we visited the Nanjing Aeronautical University, Suzhou University, Shanghai Jiaotong University, and Beijing Aeronautical University.

    Saw many traditional Chinese gardens and had too much eel.

    The Big Buddha on Lantau Island, Hong Kong

    Yours truly, Ross, Osamu, and Cuong.

    One of the largest Buddha statues in the World, it was constructed in Nanjing and assembled in Hong Kong.

    When the new Hong Kong International Airport opens, it will be the very first Hong Kong landmark visible to arriving visitors.

    Map: Hong Kong.

    Eating Noodles in the Squatting Position, Shenzhen, Guangdong, China

    A picture of us eating noodles in the Squatting Position Left to right:
    David, Yours truly, Yihren (really, Pecan's uncle).

    Though Shenzhen can hardly be considered as typical China, the Cultural Village and Splendid China were all that I had time to show Dave and Yihren how China was like.

    I am sure one can find better "noodles - Xian style" somewhere in Hong Kong.

    Map: Shenzhen.
