The Crown Price, who pulled the triggers, could only stop being Crown Prince by abdicating, being declared insane, committing suicide or marrying into a beef eating ...

I could spend 2 weeks in Beijing and not see everything but I feel that we have really gotten the most out of this trip for the limited time we had here. To say that I have fallen in love with this city is an understatement and I will definitely be back to visit again.
