China Adventure: Tienanmen Square

Tienanmen Square was only a few blocks away from our hotel ... or so we thought from the map we were looking at. We're still not sure if we took the long way or if the blocks in China are just really long, but after about 45 minutes, we arrived at Tienanmen Square and started to explore.

 This is the original city gate for Beijing. Beautiful structure - I think you can go inside, but we were there after 5pm so it was closed.

 Not exactly sure what building this is - some kind of government offices - guards out front and all closed up for the night.

 No idea what this was, but it was cool so we had to take a photo.

The entrance to the Forbidden city. We didn't have enough time this trip to tour through it. Next time.
