Madge and Mr. Madge recently returned from a trip-of-a-lifetime through mainland China.  First stop was Beijing.  It was a hot August day and our itinerary took us through the Temple of Heaven park, Tiananmen Square and to the Forbidden City.  Despite the heat most locals were impeccably turned out putting us Americans in their place.

In between dodging an armada of selfie sticks, Madge was delighted to see the abundance of beautiful hats.  Here’s a look at some fun and stylish women from the day.

Two generations – Same colors, different style.
