A Day in Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City

We spent the morning of Tuesday, October 12 in China checking out of
our hotel and touring Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City. We had our
own personal guide who picked us up, opened the doors for us, bought our
lunch at Pizza Hut in Beijing, and of course showed us all the sites of
Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City. The amount of patriotism to
country that you can see by the Chinese people is amazing especially
seeing them in a place like this. The place was packed and Peter our guide
said it was not that busy. I am so glad he was with us. The Forbidden City
is where the Chinese emperors used to live. I had no idea how large this
place was, it is unbelievable. We walked for what seemed like 2 miles and
we did not even get to the end.
