... biggest being the first with five bridges over it, the middle for the emperor and his wife only on her wedding day, each other bridge allowed certain GPS over. Five dynasties lived there, one emperor had almost a 1000 concubines, whoah! Apparently the number of rooms is about 8000, imagine a baby being born here in the palace and sleeping each night in a different room, he'd be finished at the age of all most 28!

Now the only thing left to do is figure out how to pack everything...I have a feeling it is going to take awhile. We better get on it! Our 4am wake-up call will be here before we know it!

These Cantonese dishes were the opening act for the duck and we had fun sampling and savoring. Alicia enjoyed all of it...ok, ...
