Rickshaws at the Drum Tower

Big Announcement Today!

I’m out at Jason Calacanis’ LAUNCH event today. I’ll be taking the stage in late afternoon to announce and show off our newest iPad app. I’ll try to do a live Google+ Hangout from the event, so follow my Google+ profile for the latest!

Daily Photo – Rickshaws at the Drum Tower

I’ve visited G?lóu many times and never taken a photo. I just couldn’t figure one out.

And then, this most recent trip, I walked around the tower several times until I finally got an idea.

This is the giant drum tower built about a thousand years ago by Kublai Khan. An enormous drum rests in front, and it was beat rhythmically to announce meetings. The temple sits in the Inner City to the north of Di’anmen Street.
