the forbidden city


After Angela's question about the Forbidden City, I decided to post a few more pics. I didn't actually take any really good ones, but here are a few of the outside, the inside, and the gardens.
It's called the Forbidden City because it used to be forbidden to everyone except for royalty.
It's just behind Tiananmen Square, right in the middle of Beijing. I had a great hostel to stay in just a ten minute walk from Tiananmen Square.

breathtakingly beautiful! I so enjoy your comments on life and culture as well as the stories about teaching a second language and your "cute" students. I'm loving this blog stuff, especially with someone so far and yet near to our hearts. We love you, keep it up.
