Travel Blogs from Beijing
Finally! Managed to open my own blog. Internet is very slow on some sites and it kept timing out. Perhaps the key is doing it at 4:30 in the morning. The time difference is 12 hours so I am wide awake. We were in bed before 8 last night so I did have a good sleep. So tired that I put down my mystery novel with only a few pages to go.

... was also far, far less colour in a Church than a Temple.
The Temple of Heaven is no longer used as a spiritual place, so I was much more comfortable taking pictures and just acting generally touristy. It is located of huge grounds (approximately 2.73 square km) so it is exhausting walking around all day, but it is definitely worth it. I visited the Imperial Vault of Heaven, which is supposed to be able to carry sounds for a long distance when ...
