Looking up, looking down

Looking up at the top of the Giant Wild Goose Pagoda in Xian, China.
Looking down from the top window

Notice how different the size of the incense burner appears in the two photos?

This is the Giant Wild Goose Pagoda in Xian, China. Although the Wiki says that the Chinese name actually means “big swan goose”. From the top you get views that make you realize how very large the city of Xian is.

I visited in 2014 with my dad. So glad we had a private guide: he was tired and I was able to park him with the guide and climb to the top. So glad I got to see the city from that perspective.

Another perspective: Sometimes traveling with an older parent can be similar to traveling with a child. They both get tired and fussy in the late afternoon! Ice cream is often a good solution for that.
