My Fisrt day in Beijing was a blast. We started off the morning with a fantastic breakfast that included both american and Asian cuisine. We then gathered together got on the bus and our adventure for the day began.we started off by going to the Tiananmen Square where we learned about the Chinese Dynasty's .It was such an incredible place. We then continued to the forbidden city. home to 4 Dynasty's I believe. The buildings were absolutely breathtaking. One according to our guide it is the second oldest architecture of its kind , first being one in Russia. It however is the biggest. After The Forbidden city we went a to a eat with a Chinese family This was definitely a great experience. We also went to a Chinese Resturant, which was also was fantastic. lastly we went to the acrobat show . It was beyond anything I had ever seen in the united States . At one point there were 7 motorcycles in the cage driving around/ This was one incredible day. looking forward to a fantastic day at the Great Wall Tomorrow..
