…we visited a most treasured national landmark on a national holiday. On a really hot sunny national holiday, with a baby. In China such a mistake could have ended in being stuck for hours in a human traffic jam halfway up a mountain and some serious claustrophobia and a bad case of the grumps. Here at least it just meant we were all a little sweaty and a little photo-bombed.
Still an amazing site, I can’t wait to share all of the pictures Chris took while Will boycotted the ergo and conked out in my twitchy shutterbug arms. Poor guy got lots of commands (“take a picture of that!” “dial back on the aperture! You need more shutter speed!”) but he took some great shots. He also made me a desperately-needed belt with just some webbing and a carabiner. Proof that I still suck at packing and that he is the ultimate Mcgiver. What would I do without him?
We will be back in Chengdu soon, until then, look! It’s a baby at the palace!
