My favourite picture in today's series is the one of Confucius. He is a very wise man, whose words I enjoy reading. It's good to see he has such a nice statue in an appropriate place like this. Thank you for showing it nobu, it is special.

the gates are very beautyful ,the walls seem to be build in a very different way than ours, but it's true that the statue of Confucius is very great and impressive.We see him almost like a legend, we still are reading today what he wrote centuries ago, and it's fascinating to see his face.This place is like an oasis of peace.Thanks for sharing.
