Day Four: Temple of Heaven, Market Shopping, Hot Pot Lunch, Tianjin Welcome Dinner
Waking up this morning was a little hard. The night before, we went out on the town and tried our first Hookah. It was so fun and it was in a beautiful area. It was located on a canal and there were restaurants surrounding the banks. You could take little boats out if you wanted to, very romantic. Being a little tired didn't matter though because the Temple of Heaven as stunning. The Temple of Heaven is known to be a "hang out" spot for the people of Beijing. There were people playing games, dancing, a form of hacky sack, kung fu, and more. It was so interesting to be at the Temple of Heaven and to people watch. Talking about people watching, the whole time that we have been in China it is very interesting that men always lift up there shirt or a lot of the time they aren't wearing a shirt at all. We saw one man actually wearing his shirt around his waist for pants. Overall though, men always, for some reason, roll up their shirts just above their pecks. It is very hot outside but I still do not understand this. It is very common in China and I will get to the bottom of this odd phenomena.
