... Two were standing by the national flag pole. The flag raising ceremony lasted exactly as long as sunrise and the lowering just as long as sunset. There were also fire extinguishers in a 100 foot square in front of the flag pole about every 10 feet. I asked why and Lucia said that it was just to show that they were prepared.

We started at 9:30 and went all the way until 1:00, both of our professors serenading us with Beach Boys songs and Michael Jackson.

The next morning we were up bright and ...

... at the echo wall. I'm not sure if it worked, I yelled at the wall, but just felt silly. Maybe it's a trap for gullible tourists! I also walked around the impeccably named Palace of Abstinence, Divine Music Administration, Double Rings Longevity Pavilion and Imperial Walkway Bridge.
It has been a fun week, but very, very busy. Looking back, I have no idea how I fit so much in. I look forward to more sightseeing, studying and snow (wishful thinking) this ...
