If you would be a
real seeker after truth,
it is necessary that
at least once in your life
you doubt, as far as possible, all things.
Rene Descartes (1596 - 1650)

Peking Opera & Peking University:

Always my friends wanted to know what I wanted to see and do and eat. I definitely wanted to see the Peking Opera, and got my wish and more. A friend of my friends sent his car to pick us up, drove us to the restored (circa 1800) historic theater, arranged for a private dining room, and then treated me to the central balcony seat. The balcony consisted of one row of chairs with a table, tea, and treats before us. I even had my chance at the stage, fortunately after all the other guests left.

Below is the most beautiful university campus I have ever seen: Peking University.
