On this day - October 13 in ...

2013 - Beijing
While tourists flood into the Forbidden City and the National Museum of China across the street, there are other museums throughout the country as well as in Beijing to enjoy some historic artifacts. Would you mind being served a drink with this exquisite device on display at the Capital Museum?



2017 - Turpan Depression, Xinjiang
This oasis 200 feet below sea level is among the lowest places we can visit. While it may look empty and arid, locals have adapted to use mountain runoff to grow melons and grapes. I feasted on dried grapes here and enjoyed seeing the ruins of a mud city preserved by the climate. Jiaohe pictured here is believed to be 2300 years old.
