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.
