Picture of the Day: Baby Manchu

Spring has finally arrived with warmer temperatures which meant we could finally shed those sleeping-bag down jackets.

Yesterday I took a friend who is visiting to see the Summer Palace and we saw a number of cute kids.

This is one of them, who was quite friendly. After waving to him a few times he would give a big laugh and a smile.

Although he was bundled up, his best accessory was the silk cap complete with a fake queue at the back.

The Chinese government seems to delight in capitalizing on its imperialist history despite the negative connotations...

on a recent visit to meso-america we met a number of cute kids who are most friendly to strangers like us. we took lots of pictures of them and they gracefully pose for us.
