Beijing hilltop
October 11th, 2009 by Kate

This park was one of four built along side the Forbidden City for the royal families.  The hill we are on is built of the debris from when they dug the moat around the wall (and also is rumored to hold a stash of coal).  The building in the background all lit up is the northern gate to the Forbidden City, and all the dark area behind it is part of it.  It is massive, over 6000 buildings!
