the simple life

We are all Chinese

At the Forbidden City, my Chinese guide told us about how some of the treasures were moved to Taiwan where they reside in the National Palace Museum in Taipei.

He added that he wished the treaures would return to Beijing when China and Taiwan reunite.

"We are all Chinese", were his last words.

It was said with gentleness, longing and humilty that I can't help but to be moved.
