April 16th-April 18th
And the fun just doesn’t stop. Beijing was filled with people, and people, and people, and more people. Here I saw the most foreign tourists. Immediately I felt like I related more to them than the Chinese faces I saw.
I didn’t have a chance to see much of Beijing. We went to Tiananmen Square and toured the Forbidden City.
These huge iron “bowls” were used to store emergency water.
I spent an afternoon walking around jingshan park, which provides views of the Forbidden City.
I’m pretty sure that I was fooled into thinking it was a foggy day. More likely it’s the pollution.
Yes, the tulips are nice. I find it almost comical that so many people all line up to take pictures.
The lady beside the saxophone player began singing along in a soprano voice. It’s always neat watching music bring people together.
