Dear Parents,
 
Today is our field-trip day.
 
We got up at 6:30 a.m. had breakfast at 7 a.m., and left at 8 a.m. Our first stop was the Forbidden City. We entered through the Shen Wu Men (north gate) at  8:30 a.m. and left the Wu Men (south gate) at around 11:30 a.m. Apparently we were taking the time to go through this famous place.
 
Then we got on to the Tian An Men gate. We took a group photo there. Then we walked through the Tian An Men square, the largest square in the world. Before we entering the square, which could be crowded at places, the kids decided on their own that they should all hold on one kid's backpack. All 14 kids wearing yellow t-shirt formed a "chain" and moved like a snake. It's a very nice scene. Will share pictures with you!!
 
This is the first year, the kids thought of this method and it worked really really well. I'm going to use this same method in the future.
 
We had lunch at "Tian Jin Hundred Dumplings" place. The food was excellent. We had boiled dumplings as well as the pan-fried ones. We ate a LOT!
 
We then went to the National Grand Theater and visited the entrance hall. The theater is a beautiful piece of work!!
 
We then spent the time from 3 to 4:30 p.m. on taking a rest and walking on the Tian An Men square. Originally, we were going to walk the Qian Men walking district. However, it's not opened yet.
 
We walked by the Chairman Mao Memorial Hall or the Mausoleum of Mao Zedong listening to the tour guide's introduction. We then sat between the Mausoleum and the People's Hero Monument listening to the tour guide (Rebbecca) telling us stories in World war two, especially against the Japanese military.
 
From there, we headed to Zhu2 Sun1 E2, a specialized restaurant serving geese meat and other parts of a goose. It's very good!!
 
The owner of the restaurant gave us a lot of fresh fruits. Andre and Samuel helped Gong Laoshi to carry the fresh fruits to the office at 15th floor in another building so that the fruits can be put into the refrigerator.
 
So much for today!
 
Bonnie
