We got to our hotel at 1:00 am on Friday night. This was the view from the room. Everyone does some type of exercise in the morning - we saw someone ribbon dancing across the street.
Saturday July 16th/Sunday 17th - First two days in China were spent in Beijing site seeing and shopping.
On Saturday we went to Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City which is just across from the Square. The only thing I can say is it is amazingly huge and beautiful. Our guide had an umbrella with a flag on the top so we could follow her through the massive crowds of people. The only problem - there were hundreds and hundreds of people with umbrellas and tons of guides with flags on top!
