No thanks to having no access to VPN while in Beijing, I seem to be having a hard time catching up with the blog posts. With it being almost 2 a.m. three days after the following events, I am actually sacrificing sleep to blog. I’d say that’s some serious dedication—with a touch of insanity.
The highlight of today was definitely the Summer Palace. Before we visited, however, we returned to Tiananmen Square to explore the National Museum of China. Inside, among the many things to see and remember, of course a statue of Mao had to be included.
Funnily enough, as we were about to head out, a cute Chinese girl asked my roommate if she could take a photo with her. #whitepeopleinChinaproblems
Fortunately, the weather again was beautiful, making strolling through Summer Palace truly relaxing and enjoyable. Oh, and full of #ART opportunities.
