Tiananmen Square

After a rather uneventful day of lectures and Mandarin classes, my friends wanted to go to Tiananmen Square at night, actually the picture is the front of the Forbidden City, where the portrait of Mao is but we saw the square from afar. We weren’t allowed to go in because of the flag ceremony which we missed so we just looked around the front of the Forbidden City.Image


As you can see I actually was aiming to take a picture of the Fu dog for my family. This was actually the second time I had been, having been on the first day I arrived and again we were constantly followed by sellers selling hats and other touristy things to which we declined and walked off as fast as we could. It was also really cold, being evening and all that, probably the coldest we felt (so far anyway) and some people went back to the University straight after because they were so cold.

I noticed I said I’d post a picture of Tianjin but I’m going to wait until it comes up chronologically in case I forget to say something.
