Today we headed towards the Summer Palace, home of the infamous "Dragon Lady". We then got to take a look at where the Olympic games were held. We ended our day at Tianamen Square. On our way to each location, I noticed something that I've been noticing throughout the time here: Chinese driving. Everytime I look out the window of our tour bus, I see at least one car cutting off another car, followed by numerous honking and bell ringing from bikes. Now from that description, you'd think there'd be car crashes left and right. However, not once have I seen any sign of even a minor car accident since I've been here. Dr. Li let me know that the driver's tests taken in China are more vigorous than those taken in the U.S., so you really need to know what you're doing to drive in China.
