Janice (April 14): Tom looking over his new garden ornament, Forbidden City, Beijing
Tom (April 14): Still in Beijing. Heavenly City today.
Janice was very sore by the end of the day from a lot of walking around the endless palaces of the Forbidden City, but a very nice day overall. Some of the people in the group are not very lively, but a couple of couples are fun. We took a video one of 13 similar courtyards!
Janice: Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City were fabulous, but HUGE! My leg got very sore. I got a cute photo with an old Chinese man. There were huge crowds of interesting-looking people. I’ve been writing a lot in my journal.
Tom (April 15): Air has been pretty clear, bright sunny and hot. Going through gates into Summer Palace was like trying to swim through a river of people that was at flood stage. Going to Great Wall today.
