Here now and now here or nowhere

The title of this blog comes from a play on words that "now here" is also the same letters as "nowhere" just with a space added in the middle. I am always trying to get better at being in the here and now, and I've always been a bit of a joker so that is why I chose this name.

Temple of Heaven

Another big tourist spot in Beijing is the Temple of Heaven. The temple itself is a beautiful structure surrounded by some rather large and ceremonious halls. Outside of the temple is a massive park area. Inside you'll find people practicing tai chi, playing card games, mahjong, kite flying, or just hanging out. The entire park area has much to see and do inside of it. If I lived in BJ I could see spending a weekend day here just chilling out.
