BEIJING, CHINA

Posted by Rebecca

Wow, Beijing is incredible!  It’s definitely different from Tokyo and Seoul and the United States – lots of police and security – but it is still wonderful.  On Sunday, we went to the Forbidden City, and it really was about the size of a small town – way bigger than I was expecting!  We kept going through gates thinking it would be the end, but it just kept going and going and going, but it was amazing.  All the statues, painting, architecture, and the layout was just gorgeous.

Monday was probably one of the coolest days of my life – we drove to the Great Wall!  We went to a section of the wall called Juyong Gua; it was really steep and tons of stairs but it was so worth it.  The view was AMAZING, and so, so beautiful.

Tian'an Men Square - so amazing!

The Forbidden City.  There were so man buildings, and they were all amazing - and identical.
