He's watching you too
Entering the (not so) Forbidden City
Playing Forbidden Hoops
Alice met lots of people
Garden toward north end of City
Alice tries on hairpieces
Chris at the "Hill of Piled Excellence"
Roger Moore narrated our audio tour: "dynasty" became "dinnasty"
Coming out the north end of the City: the hill in the background was made of earth...
...excavated during construction of this moat.
Back at the hotel: Alice drinks tofu from a cup
And tries on Dad's revolutionary t-shirt
Ducks in hell
How many ducks are in hell
