Summer Palace, Beijing, China

The summer palace, contrary to its name, is neither summery nor a palace.

It’s actually a vast multi-acre area that’s made to be a resort getaway of sorts

Of course, it was winter when we went, so the artificial lake was still pretty icy, and the place didn’t look all too summery

Crossing the longest imperial bridge, the bridge of 17 arches

Icy still

Hilarious—earmuffs on a pishu statue.
