Beijing - Temple of Heaven and Pearl Market

A travel blog entry by storylady7 on Jun 11, 2014

G-Dad and I went tithe gym this morning. Grammy finally came to breakfast with us! At 9 o'clock, we left for the Tjemple of Heaven. The bus ride wasn't very long. So we arrived at 9:45ish. When we first got there, ethnic dancers swirled and twirled to the music of a communist band. We walked farther and saw some hacky sack type of games, sand balls with and without paddles. Jan a bought a flowered hat and we headed on to watch ...

... cheerful lunchtime luckyfind goodness, and the KFC debacle. It turns out that the cheap and cheerful goodness is in fact leftover breakfast, and as yet there's no leftovers.

While none of us ate these delicacies, we did scream like little girls and run away. The Chinese food vendors found it pretty funny.

... before we finally figured it out! She didn't understand what we wanted, and we thought she was ripping us off. typical stupid american tourists... we caused quite a scene!

Once we got through, though, we found that the subway system was very safe, modern, and clean! We are guessing that like many other things in the city, the subway system was probably redone for the 2008 Olympics. We did, however, encounter ...

... above the rooftops.

The hutongs also boast a few secret restaurants that do the most exquisite food in the most classy atmosphere. We went to one, called Dali - almost impossible to find with it’s discrete sign crumbled doorway. We would have not have been able to find it, only Vinh had read about it on Trip Advisor. This a very cool restaurant set in an old courtyard. You pay for a set menu of about seven dishes but you don’t know what they are - ...
