China Trip 2017
This year's trip to China has been fantastic so far. We arrived in Beijing very early on Saturday morning after a ten hour flight. We visited the Tian'amen Square where we saw the portrait of Chairman Mao and the Forbidden City, where the Chinese emperors lived until the early 20th century. We took part in a tea ceremony, morning exercises such as dance and tai'chi in the Temple of Heaven park. We have also visited the Summer palace and hiked up the Great Wall of China. Last night (Monday 11th) we slept (or tried to) on the over night train to Xian, where we are visiting a local high school and the Terracotta warriors.
