In their last days as students at the Beijing University of Language and Culture, trips to the Summer Palace (YíHéYuán) and the ruins of, but still beautiful, 'Old Summer Palace' (YuanMingYuan).

Why the West is using the Uyghurs
The XinJiang region, (north) west China, has been under Chinese rule since at least the 18th Century.
