My favorite city so far is Bejing. I love the history, bueaty and energy in that massive metro area. The traffic was crazy and the shops at night were fun. It was amazing the amount of building that was going on. Everywhere you looked there were massive cranes across the skyline. I am a Buddhist and practice Mindful meditation from the Thich Nhat Hanh tradition. The book I have enjoyed recently is "The force of kindness" by Sharon Salzberg. My goal in life is to show kindness and compassion to all living things.
