Beijing Tour

We took a guided tour today to see the Heavenly Temple, Forbiden City and Summer Palace. It was very windy out. We were the only ones on this tour but there was many Chinese visiting because of the Chinese New Year and Spring Festival. Our guide took some of these pictures. We new the tour included transportation, tickets and lunch. What we didn't know until we were on our way was that it also included a tour of a silk factory, pearl factory, porcelain museum and a tea house. These other stops were mixed in with the first three along with there full-court, high-pressure sales pitchs. All we got was a $15 bracelet for Suzanne. It was a long day so everyone is crashed-out early and I am headed that way.
