Tianamen Square. Note all the cameras? Each of those lampposts had five or six. There are at least 100 of thoses posts. Also, there were two coaches on the other side of that building, and they were bristling with surviellance equipment. I thought it prudent to not photograph them.
The Great Hall of the People.
The Forbidden City
The Great jumbotron of the People.
A breakfast kiosk. I thought it was a brillant idea.
I didn't eat a single bit of Western food while I was there.
Right across Tianamen square from the Forbidden city is the old market area. This shop has been selling cutlery since 1632. (It's seen a few rennovations in that time.) I have a few of their pieces. You may not borrow them.
Iiiii want canndee! These are hawberries in a sugar glaze. When she was little, missus had to save up all year to buy one.
I have to wonder what the chic brands were back in the day?
