Tianamen Square - Forbidden City
Set out to discover some of the sights with my guide, Jack. Unfortunately when we came up to Tianamen Square -- there was some government meeting that kept us from being on the square itself -- so I had to look from across the street. We also went by the Peoples Building (Parliment Building), The People's Memorial (Like the Washington Memorial in Shape) and the two towers -- Arrow Tower and South Gate Tower of the Outside Ring (I think that is what he said -- it gets confusing). The Forbidden City is beautiful -- the architecture amazing and crazy to be around things this old -- foreign to us in the USA.
