Today I took a couple of buses to the Summer Palace about 20 km outside of Beijing. The Summer Palace consists of an enormous lake surrounded by bridges, pagodas, temples and living quarters for the summer months when Beijing would get too hot. There is a great path around the lake and it took almost 3 hours to walk around it.
I have great pictures to post but I am currently in Xian and the computers at the hostel are antiquated and it would take weeks to upload. So hopefully in a few days when I can find an internet cafe. The computers at the hostel are free is why I am using them in the first place.
