... pretty chill, everyone slept, or rather tried to sleep while the bus driver got a little too much use out of the horn. Then it was back to the subway station to begin the adventure back to the hostel.
When back at the hostel we all got cleaned up and began working some more on the postcards, as well as eating a burger in the cafe. It was quite an interesting burger; with big slices of cucumber on it. We worked until about 12:30, when our heads were bobbing because we were so ...

The Forbidden City was BUSY. We turned the corner to be met by about a million people all trying to get in! The capacity of the Forbidden City is 68 000 per day. Everyday they admit more than 120 000. As a result the Forbidden City was not quite as spectacular as we had hoped. In the old days, officials were ...
