After a late start we went to the fake goods market where everybody spent money they didn't really have on factory rejects and knock offs of designer clothes, bags and shoes.

Being good Christians, we headed to the Catholic Church in Beijing for a few prayers (parents, please note) and then on for the last of the shopping in one of the biggest department stores here.
