What I did
It is 9:30 PM and we just walked in the door. A lazy morning for us but a busy afternoon and evening. The girls & I went to see the Lama Temple today. Upon arrival, there were 4 huge tourist buses unloading and I felt so proud NOT to be part of the group. It felt great that we had navigated the subways and found the temple on our own! Anyway, beautiful temple with lots of locals burning incense to make prayer offerings. The girls complained of the smoke but still enjoyed seeing the huge golden Buddha statues.
After the show we returned back to our favorite park so the girls could take Michael on a boat ride.
When we got off at our subway stop, the street was like an open street market! Who knew? Beijing is full of surprises.
