... beds with hoses, as well as a sprinkler system going along the edge of a flower bed. Very different from brown Mongolia. We visited the enormous Tiananmen Square. It has a huge gateway at the south end, a mausoleum to Mao part way up, and a large statue to the workers. Then, at the northern end it leads through more decorative gateways into the Forbidden City.

Justin informed us that Tiananmen Square is the largest city square in the world and can fit up to 1,000,000 people in it.
