Business mission participants today enjoyed Beijing’s Forbidden City, along with rickshaw rides through old Beijing and a trip to the Emperor’s Summer Palace.
The weather has been hazy, due in large part to thick air polution. As someone remarked this morning, a good day in China is when you can see your shadow.
But grey skies haven’t dampened the spirits. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and we’re taking advantage of it.
While the Forbidden City was truly breath-taking, many would agree the highlight came when we had lunch in someone’s home. The hostess was fantastic, serving a great meal and a plethora of jokes.
