Day 9, we went to the emperor’s summer palace. I actually enjoyed this place because it’s not like the the other palaces I’ve been to. The summer palace was built into the side of a mountain so there’s rock everywhere. Afterward, we went back into town only to find it pissing rain. We took shelter in a shopping mall and ate in some Taiwanese noodle joint. We stopped by a bakery in the mall for some snacks for the next day before we went back to the condo. We needed the buns because the next day was another travel day. We were on our way back to Shanghai for Expo 2010!
Day 8 – Went to back to Tienanmen square and went inside. For those who don’t know, behind the red wall is the Forbidden City. The place is freakin massive and a lot of it looked the same.
