I had been doing my blogs in a different blog that I had created, so I apologize that they made it to this blog so late..
Today I learned some interesting history about China such as when the Forbidden City was built and how long it took to build it. The Forbidden City truly is incredible, not only in its size but also its history and architecture. I also learn about other Chinese monuments such as the Monument of Chinese Hero's, as well as more about Chinese dynasties and how the capital cities have changed over time with the change of rule. I also learned that the Chinese don't leave you hungry after you eat - The food was amazing, and plentiful. My first impressions of Beijing are that it is a very large city with many fun things to do. I really enjoyed the Acrobatics show, the performers were very talented. Hopefully the upcoming days will be just as awesome as the first.
