Yuanmingyuan 圆明园: Bridge photos

Spring photos from the Yuanmingyuan park in Beijing, water and bridges

The next view is from the other side of the lake, less attended by people.

The Zither Player and a Wolf – after Latvian folk story

 

 

The fairy tale is about a boy who was a great zither player. Once he got lost in a dark forest, and fell into a hole with a wolf. The wolf already jumped to attack, but as the boy started playing, he stopped listening to the wonderful music.
