Ironically we joined about 1,000,000 people at the Forbidden City this morning. After 3-4 amazingly colored buildings, things started to run together to be honest. Eventually we reached an amazing garden and caught a glimpse of the Temple of Heaven.
We were fed multiple courses at a traditional family home for lunch after a rickshaw ride through an old part of Beijing.
Tonight Brian and I managed to get him a SIM card (for the cell phone) and order a spicy Chinese dinner all by ourselves. We walked through the streets commenting on how helpful everyone has been, despite the language gap.
Day 2 in Beijing: complete.
