I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed at the amount of Temples of different shapes and sizes ... part of me now wants to go to our next destination, but another part of me just wants to take in all the history in throughout the many fortresses built in Beijing which hold alot of history about the past and how Ancient China has affected today's China ... their food (eg. rice and tea etc.), clothing, gov't, and dishes ...

I begin to get back into the touring mood ... I guess because I am presented with so much information in 3 days with no time to 'take it in' in seemed like alot ... but I quickly begin listening to our tour guide and taking in new information about Beijing ... I begin laughing at my friend when an innocent older lady approached her with Winter Olympic Hats at the _____ I couldn't stop, wherever we went, she followed ... finally my friend gives in and buys I hat; I have to not make eye contact as I can feel her presence ...

Waiting for the tickets into Tian Square we eventually walk off and the lady with those Olympic Hats begins to find her next client ...

I will get more specific ... and adjust my information later ...
