What a day! We did so much today and are having a wonderful time.
Our day started early with breakfast buffet at our hotel so thankful they have great tasting coffee! Enjoyed trying different Chinese breakfast foods - liked the congee also.
We met our guide and began our tour of Beijing at Tiananmen Square.
Then to the Forbidden City
the sign on the left says "Long live peoples republic of China"
the one on the right says "Long live the unity of the world
|luv my man!|
we went on a rickshaw ride for Hutong tour and lunch at a local family home- which was delicious!
|with our guide Jack|
|the sweet lady who made our lunch|
|the red lanterns are up for the Chinese New Year that is happening right now|
After lunch we went to silk factory

then to Chinese tea house
After that we went to Chinese Acrobatic Show- which was totally amazing! We are so glad we got to see that show. It was beautiful and at times we both kept holding our breathe amazed at what they were doing!
We were so exhausted from our fun day we just got room service so we can be rested for tomorrow.
