Beijing: Day 2

This was our busiest day of the week!  We woke early to climb on the tour bus, along with Vicki Davis and her students from Georgia, to see Tienanmen Square, The Forbidden City, Old Beijing, the Lama Temple, a Peking Duck supper, and finished the evening at the Chinese opera.  Whew!  It was a busy, but this was the first evening we could stay awake for the evening's entertainment.  Unfortunately, Chinese opera was not to our liking.  I guess it must be an acquired taste :).  Anyway, here's the video blog:

Day 1

Here is a video blog about our first day in Beijing, China.  Enjoy!  I will be posting one per day now that I am back and can access Blogger.  It was blocked in China...along with Facebook.  Glad to be home, but oh what a great trip it was!
