    Stone Lion in Forbidden City
The earliest stone lion (shí shī 石狮) was discovered in a Eastern Han Dynasty tomb in Ya'an (yǎ ān 雅安), Sichuan Province (sì chuān shěng 四川省). During the Ming Dynasty (míng cháo 明朝) stone lions were placed in front of palaces, government buildings, temples and even some rich family mansions to display power. Later, stone lion designs were carved as decoration on important architectural features such as door lintels and eaves.

Navjot Singh and His China Travel Books
Foreigners in China - Foreigners in China

Newcomers to China by Navjot SinghGoing to another country for the first time, whether for business or pleasure, can be a daunting experience – especially if you are going on a long-term basis, and have to relocate with your family in order to make that new country your second home. For most foreign people, China is probably not an easy place to adapt to because of cultural differences, language barriers and just the fact that it’s so far away from Europe and the Americas that people automatically fear the remoteness and isolation. For one British expatriate, the China experience has been nothing short of an adventurous journey. Navjot Singh, a Briton from London, initially went to China in 2002 for a short one-week holiday. Here he describes his experience from then onwards.

I am really happy that I registered at WorldFriends Networks
K.K.

I met a wonderful person through this service. At the moment he lives nearby, but soon he will return to U.S. When I was down, he cheered me up and supported me. He is a very kind and wonderful gentleman. I did not expect to meet such a nice person here, so I am really happy that I registered. Exchanging emails is really enjoyable and gives me energy. It is sometimes difficult because of the differences between our cultures. However, I really feel that there is no boundary between people with a good heart.
I deeply appreciate the chance to meet him here. He gave me lots of beautiful words.
I am really happy that I registered WorldFriends Networks.
