Gates of Forbidden City
In Tiananmen, "the largest public square."
The square where the 1989 protests took place
You are not allowed to take pictures of the guards, who check your bags on the way into the square.
Standard Communist monuments-- these are everywhere
They don't move-- perhaps similar to the British guards
V for Victory-- everyone was throwing these deuces up.
Although you can't take pictures of the guards, there are a group that stand just for tourists' photographic needs.
Then they turn around.
Chairman Mao and my Father
Recently painted ancient Chinese architectural art.
Inner gates of Forbidden City
There are mazes
upon mazes, of these hallways
Century year old tree
Imperial Garden--- Must go back in the Spring...
