Day 3 was our last sight seeing day in Beijing.  What I remember most is that it was cold and windy and we walked a ton!

We spent most of our day touring Tiananmen Square and The Forbidden City.  I truly wish I could have recorded all that our guide shared with us because there was so much history and I remember so very little of it.

Just through Tiananmen Gate is the Imperial Palace (Forbidden City).

We also got to tour a silk factory which was quite interesting.  I had no idea what the process entailed.

We ended our last day in Beijing with some obligatory food selfies and a bit of a disturbing experience.  You can ask me about it some time, but let’s suffice it to say that Mandy and I were glad to be back in our locked hotel room after dinner.
