36 Hours in Beijing

We took a whirlwind trip to Beijing during the Labor Day holiday this past weekend. How did we spend our time there?

We first hit up the Beijing Auto show. Seeing as this was technically a work trip for Matt, we spent a fair amount of time here. It was insanely crowded with people, cars, and people standing next to cars.
I entered on an exhibitor's badge. Looks just like me, right?

(side note, yes I am wearing a cat shirt and no, I did not buy it in China. I actually bought this in the US, thank you very much)
While Matt manned the booth for his work the following day, I spent my time exploring the Forbidden City.
The Forbidden City was the Imperial Palace for numerous Chinese emperors, spanning a 500 year period. Unfortunately, I went on a very hazy, and very busy day, neither of which lend themselves to decent photos.
 After five hours of wandering around (yes, there is that much to see), I took my tired feet to the airport where I met back up with Matthew and headed home to Shanghai.
