Beijing, day one

Hello everyone

Our first day in Beijing was fantastic. Hot with a lot of walking, but fantastic!

(Mary Louise is still a bit tired. She just looked over my shoulder and asked, in all seriousness if I was typing in Chinese!)

Today we toured Tian A'men Square, the Forbidden City and the Temple of Heaven. Words cannot begin to describe these places. If you ever have the opportunity you must visit this amazing country. Thinking that we walked the same stone walks and paths that Chinese Emporers walked thousands of years ago and imagining being there in those days is just awe inspiring.

I will post pictures when able. I am still having a few glitches with the computer.
