The first of October is Chinese National Day and I figured it would be the right time to check out Tian An'Men. Approximately half of China's population had an identical thought and as the pictures show it was crowded. I bought a little Chinese flag because it seemed like the thing to to do and I got lots of attention as I walked around. A lot of Chinese people took pictures with me using there own cameras and a few followed me around asking questions. They also took the pictures of me in front of various points of interest. It was a very interesting experience, the funniest part being when some a woman brought over her baby to get in the picture with me. I felt like a celebrity.
This weekend we are heading to the Great Wall so stay tuned, I'm told this is the best part of the wall in terms of having a mix of restored and un-restored wall as well as low tourism.
