Adventure Update from Pang and Mitzu.

Forbidden City

Dsc04818

Today we visited The Forbidden City. It has been the Chinese Imperial palace since the mid Ming dynasty. The Chinese Emperor once lived here, however it is now open to the public (and bears and monkeys!) It is a huge palace made entirely of wood (which of course has burnt down several times and been rebuilt.) But still, the size and grandness of the building is amazing. The palace grounds go on and on… I think we spent a total of five hours exploring the beauty of the grounds!
