Today I went on a big adventure all by myself as N once again was off on work stuff (on the fast train, exciting). I took a taxi to Tiananmen Square, so different from when I was there last time. Huge TV screens erected in the Square which really spoils it IMHO.
Then for a wander around the Forbidden City. I spent quite a long time there before heading off out the Western Gate for a look around.

Very early start tomorrow for our flight to Xian! The start of our adventure!
