For our last day in Beijing, we went to Tiananmen Square and, my oh my, was it huge. I felt like my eyes were watching.over the horizon.
We travelled to the Forbidden City and boy, was it a hike. So many cities within a city within a city. It was so beautiful that I maxed out my SD card and internal storage on my phone by taking tons of videos and photos.
I have to say that making it to the top of the Forbidden City gave me a view like no other. It was a sight for sore eyes. It was if all of Beijing was right in front of me giving me a greeting of a lifetime.
We ate at a famous dumpling shop. We stuffed our faces with dumplings filled with mushrooms, eggs, beef and onion.
After eating, we went to "The Valley," which is like the flea market in our area. I had my backpack in front of me to catch any wandering hands. I bought a lot of items such as green tea and items that suited the likes of my dearest friends and family.
I was shocked by the cars that paved their way through the area of pedestrians. The cars were so close to the people. I was shocked by how quick they dodged. My friends and I were accustomed to this act of dodging after being blasted in the ear by numerous honking noises.
After the shopping festivities, we went to an acrobatics show. And boy, IT WAS AMAZING.
I remember it like it was yesterday.
WHICH IT WAS!
The first act was girls doing a beautiful choreography with clothes. They were in sync and I was blown away.
The second act had boys that were doing insane backfilps, but get this, THROUGH HOOPS THAT REACHED THE HEIGHT OF TWO TALL MEN (to my eyes 12 feet combined).
Their jumping was immensely impressive. To keep this short, the acts had various movements and techniques pertaining to upper body strength and incredible coordination.
My last word is this. Motorcycles.
OK, my last words are:
5 motorcycles plus 3 motorcycles plus a ball cage of death = the most beautiful thing to ever give me adrenaline.
Besides the beauty of Beijing.
