Expats in China: be sure to examine the paintings in Summer Palace long corridor. Many are taken from classic literature such as Journey to the West.
The story is loosely based from the real story of Xuan Zang, a buddhist monk who went on a trip to pick a Buddha scripture in the West (India) in the Tang Dynasty. It's one of my most favorite piece of literature that compelled me to dedicate these sites for it.
I dedicate new separate pages for it: http://www.daytodayinchina.com/jttws/
