[travel] Beijing Day One, summary recap

The day that was: We hit the road around 9, spent four hours or so at Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City, had a decent lunch of Peking duck, then spent a couple of more hours at the Temple of Heaven before coming back for drinks and dinner with AC. Deeply tired, combination of jet lag and hours of walking (in the wrong shoes, no less, thanks to my jet lagged brain this morning.) On the plus side, the_child got on famously with our guide. Also, shot about 1,100 photographs today.

Here's one:


More photos, and more bloggy goodness tomorrow, as time and energy permit.
