Last day in China. Bert and realized the one place we missed during our journey was Tiananmen Square, and the Forbidden City. Geoff has informed us that it's only the westerners who refer to it as the Forbidden City, that the Chinese do not call it this. They call it The Ancient Palace. We decided we have a couple hrs in the morning, so we're gonna make one last push to fit it in before having to head to the airport. As we got to Tiananmen Square, it was hard to imagine it as I've seen in the pictures with the violence, and army. It was a bit surreal.
As we were sitting in the lobby waiting for our taxi to the airport, I felt a bit torn. On one hand I'm looking forward to getting home to see my boys, but on the other, I couldn't help feel a bit disappointed that our journey to this amazing country was now ending. I can only hope that I'll get another invitation to come back and jump some other cool sites in the future.
