Heaven on Earth

March 14, 2016

(Written by Mr. Whittington)

Our first full day in Beijing was a very full one.  We took a public bus to the Panjiayuan Market (affectionally called the “Dirt Market” because it is outdoors) where it was a morning of bartering for “treasures.”  The afternoon was spent at the Temple of Heaven and the nearby park, where we combined sightseeing and people watching.  Then it was dumplings for dinner and a quick walk back to the hostel before everyone fell asleep at the table.
