Priceless portraits ...

A Web site that highlights Shaanxi, China, is offering a series on aerial photography that features some stunning photographs of the province where Jacob was born.

Here is the site: http://en.cnwest.com/
(anyone with ties to Shaanxi should bookmark this site, as it offers great features on the province)

And a little about the series:

"An large-scale aerial photography program entitled"Dancing Shaanxi"was launched to celebrate and mark the 30th anniversary of China's reform and opening-up,as well to show the splendid changes Shaanxi achieved.The program was co-hosted by Shaanxi Provincial Publicity Committee,Shaanxi Broadcast, Film and TV Bureau,and Shaanxi TV Station etc.The program was committed to let the public understand a new Shaanxi province,which is full of vigor and vitality."

Here is one of the aerial photos of the Xian Bell Tower. The hotel where we stayed while adopting Jake is to the upper right in the photo



Here is a photo of Qingling Mountain: The north of Xi’an is plain and the south of Xi’an is hill. The southeast is higher then southwest. The altitude of Qingling Mountain is 2000-2800 meters high. It is the borderline of northern China and southern China.
