Forbidden City   Leave a comment

Crikey our poor legs are taking some hammer at the moment.  After yesterdays visit to the zoo today was the Fobidden City.  This was huge sprawling residence of China rulers during the dynasties (Ming, Qing etc)  The site measures 720,000 m2 in size.  We spent 5 hours wondering around it.  It is a beautiful site and so well preserved considering parts are 600 years old.  Here’s a link to more info on it.
