Beijing - The Heavenly-forbidden-square-walled-temple & the Olympics too!

We left Anthony in beautiful Yangshou and headed to the capital - Beijing. We didn't give ourselves enough time for Beijing but we crammed as much as we could into the time we had -
with Starbucks to keep us going (64 stores in Beijing)- we loved this city. What would Mao think?

My pals: Beibei, Jingjing, Huanhuan, Yingying, and Nini.
When the first syllable of each of the five names are said together, the result is the phrase (Běijīng huānyíng nĭ) which means "Beijing welcomes you".
