Remembering China - Adaptation

I thought I would share the story behind this picture, as it it does seem a little random, but there was a purpose for us to take it.

Ben and I found ourselves wondering through the Summer Palace in Beijing and needed to meet up with our friend (who was also our ride back to the hotel) as it was getting dark. Our friend had written in Chinese the gate location he would be at for us to give to a taxi driver should we exit a different gate. We knew we were in the middle of the park (equal distance from all 4 gates), so we stopped at this map and figured we could skip the taxi driver and match characters from the note to one of the paths and find our own way to the correct gate. We matched the characters, followed the bottom path, exited the park, and found our friend waiting...Success!
