Maria and I took a walk today (it’s also her birthday!), along the Second Ring river and the little park that’s there and seems to run at least the length of this northern portion of the road, then got to Yonghegong, the Buddhist Lama temple in Beijing. It’s been quite a long time since I’ve been here as I don’t think I came in 2005, the last time I was in Beijing. Maria had also been wanting to do more tourist type things so this will be a first in a series I expect of us hitting all the top destinations of culture and historical relevance. Though our expectations of good English especially in the museum type piece captions were grossly disappointed. Some of the photos were taken while on the way and after we left, but it’s in basic chronological order; just look out for the ones with temple type stuff and those will be when we were actually at Yonghegong.
