Underground II

I'm probably breaking some rule now by posting a second time in one day, but I realized after my previous post that this is the 20th anniversary of Tienanmen Square.

Thousands of people came out for a vigil, and the pictures are outstanding for a country that still puts down any movement it considers dangerous:



  1. man, Patricia!
    you hit the nail on the head with this one!
    yeah -- look at ALL OF THOSE PEOPLE

    I like that you blogged about this!
    (I was excited so I typed fast -- no spell-check)

  2. I'm glad you liked it. Thanks. I saw the pictures on the web and was floored.
