This is me at the the tourist site known as the Summer Palace or Yíhé Yuán; literally "Gardens of Nurtured Harmony." It's where the Empress & Emperors used to go on vacation.
I was kinda hoping for a more fierce looking Qinlin to be guarding the Summer Palace. This one looked really skinny and wimpy.
Now this QInlin looks like it can do some major protecting.
After hours of walking, the meal of the day was Xibei food aka Mongolian.
A picture of the girl that was probably making my food.
Some veggie dishes
Little dumpling things you dipped in your soup.
Lamb, fungus, & Mongolian hard bread.
I've been really lazy uploading pictures since the weather here has been really bad. Part 2 to come.
