Be ready for a very long walk. We both wore our Converse. J has always been a fan. Me, I'm not yet sold. There was pinching on both pinkies. So I'm still searching for the most comfortable travel shoes.

BEST OF BEIJING - 2
BEST MEMORIES FROM THE FORBIDDEN CITY
We were in awe of the entire complex!
Photo taken by J from the Jingshan Park.
I felt honored to freely walk through the once off-limits historical complex which served as the home of emperors for almost five hundred years.
Above: Rubbing the door knobs for good luck!
The last emperor and empress of the Qing dynasty
had their picture in front of the trees
to show that "we wish to fly in heaven, two birds with one pair of wings,
and to grow together on earth, two trees with branches interlocked."
