North Korea: We slipped over the rim and into the volcano under the fog that filled the ChangBaiShan crater.  As we dropped down the steep volcano walls snow-skiing style on loose rock we entered the forbidden border zone between JiLin, China & North Korea  and this photo is looking across to North Korea.   When the fog lifted the Peoples Liberation Army soldiers on the volcano rim saw us swimming inside the forbidden crater lake and intercepted us back at the rim.  We had to pay a fine and I got to keep my camera.

Teachers’ ‘special skills’ a social media rage in China

Social media users in China have been applauding the remarkable skill of a history teacher who apparently can draw the map of the world freehand.

The pictures of the teacher drawing the map on the blackboard were posted by a student on Sina Weibo.

The student, who goes by the handle @xuxuxuermao, said that it took the teacher, surnamed Zhao, barely a few minutes to draw the entire map. The student also said that this was something that Zhao did on a regular basis.

The post attracted a number of users, who were not only appreciative of the skill but also began sharing the unique and creative skills that their teachers have displayed.

Guan Weixing (previously) was born in Dunhua County, Jilin Province, China in 1940.
In 1960, when Guan was still a first grade student in Luxun Fine Arts Academy, Eugen Popa, a Romanian Professor, broke a rule in order to accept Guan into his oil painting training class. And in 1962, he was graduated a master. So far, many of his works have been published, collected, and exhibited.

In 2005, Guan Weixing held a solo exhibition for the first time in USA at the invitation of Ambleside Gallery, and it was a great success. The viewers moved to tears were even more than those at home. Now artist is represented in the US by Ambleside Gallery.

净月潭标志物镇楼
最近不太来汉服吧,自艺考过后又历经了高考,升学,军训,总算在现在觉得有了空闲的时间。横跨了九个省份,如今也慢慢适应了长春的天气。在这儿,也认识了学校汉服社的很多同袍,不管是刚认识汉服的新同袍,还是老前辈,看到他们就觉得好温暖呀~
说到这处“世外桃源”,第一次去的时候去和这次拍摄的摄影师(咳,室友男票)还有一位学长去的,三人租了三辆自行车,从中午一点绕着净月潭骑行,净月潭的美实在是太震撼,美不胜收。路过一处花田,可惜花已不在最烂漫的时刻,路上遇到的荷塘,浮萍也已泛黄,不过在这座大森林公园来说,恰好给净月潭增添了一份暖意。
于是,时隔一个星期,我们扛着单反又来了净月潭,来为大家献上国家级森林公园——净月潭的美。
PS:这一次的出游拍摄,花了一下午的时间,由于净月潭公园实在是太大,我们骑着自行车,花了一下午也没能拍完整个净月潭公园,大约只拍了一半吧。自行车还把我的裙子给绞坏了。所以这一次,只能带大家领略她一半的美,希望在来年初春,我会完成我剩下的愿望,带大家看完净月潭剩下一半的壮阔。此刻在秋天,秋高气爽,下次相遇在初春,鸟语花香。
