Today was overcast and lightly raining so we were glad we spent yesterday outside in lovely weather at the Temple of Heaven. First there was a subway ride on 2 lines which takes you straight outside the Temples.
The streets was filled with cars and electric bicycles with young and old people all with no head protection of any sort. Bicycles are silent and have no lighting and are fast and dangerous. Boxes were ...
