BEIJING CITY, Beijing Province:
Went to Tian'anmen Square and the Forbidden City with my family today. I'm pretty certain it was the coldest day in China so far! The wind was bitter to the point that it was painful to be outside for too long!
After freezing to near-death, we went to the silk market to have a look around, and the boys complained that it was too hot inside! Madness...
In the evening we went to a restaurant nearby their hotel, and it was real test of my Chinese! All four randomly shouting out things they wanted to eat, and the menu didn't have stuff written in pin-yin! But managed to order food to please everyone, result!
