The Journey Begins

Wednesday, August 5, 2009

What an amazing trip this has been. Let me tell you we have taken Beijng by storm. Our first day has been filled with adventure. To start we went to the Temple of Heaven, than on to Tiananmen Square, and lastly the Forbidden City. One of the more exciting trips we have taken on these first few days has been to an actual Beijing residence. Mrs. Wang kindly invited us into her house. Her house was beautiful, complete with a courtyard in the middle. The most incredible part of the house was the unique significance behind every aspect of the house. One example is that they only have nine and a half rooms. If they had ten they believe it would stop people from having ambitions, since ten rooms represents a complete life. Mrs. Wang was so kind and welcoming, it was a joy meeting her.
