Beijing Tour Day 2 (Beijing, China)

Today's tour took me to Tienanmen Square, The Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven, and the Summer Palace.

Tienanmen Square:

I'm going to be honest here, this is probably one out of a handful of colorful things I saw in Beijing. The city itself is very grey.

Speaks for itself

The Forbidden City:

The Temple of Heaven:

The Summer Palace and Summer Palace Lake:

Much of the fresh water pearls found in Beijing are cultivated from oysters that live in this man made lake

Miles of covered walkways built for the 'Dragon Lady' and the emperor
