China: Forbidden City – Fellow Tourists

couldn’t help but snap a picture of this lovely couple on my boat ride in the
Forbidden City, a beautiful oasis in the midst of Beijing.  The 7,800,000 square feet space houses 980 buildings and is overwhelming to sight-see in one day – although my friend and I made a valiant effort to cover the entire place. The Forbidden City was home to China’s emperors for almost 500 years, starting in the 1400s.  Everything I saw, touch, smelled and ate amazed me.  However, I was not alone in my wonderment.  This couple gazed around the buildings and statues as much as I did.  I forget how much a country’s own citizens must not see of their own country.  How old will I be when I get around to see more of the U.S.? I have yet to visit New Orleans, San Francisco, Chicago, Las Vegas and so many more places.

  1. I have been so fortunate to have been in many of the US cities and even abroad. I am really thankful for the opportunities I have had. I have always had a travelling spirit although I can not as much now with a disabled son.
