We went! I can’t elaborate everything about how I felt being in that place here, at this time. I do live in Mainland China, after all.
The security was extra high due to the legislative session currently being held in the National People’s Congress on the Square. Tight security, with lots of guards everywhere.
But the Forbidden City itself was for another day. We took our photos with the Chairman’s portrait and wandered into the city itself at around 16:00 on Tuesday. I loved the weather in Beijing; dry and sunny even when cold, just like the plains of Colorado where I grew up.
More on Beijing soon!
