What a second day in China! Hired a car and driver and visited the Summer Palace in the morning. I've never seen so many people and the Chinese have no concept of spacial awareness. The Palace is spectacular, with masses of tiny detail which you can easily miss. Odd experience of the day was seeing 3 men catch a pickpocket.
The afternoon was spent at the Juoyong pass of the Great Wall - never seen so many steps. Fantastic life experience!
Perhaps the most exiting experience of the day - the car ride through Beijing - No prisoners taken.
