Due to the craziness of the holiday (and having been told that travel would be extra crowded) we avoided subway line 1 and started our day on a bus to a different subway line.
Jingshan Park is a public park next to the Forbidden City. It used to be an Imperial Garden.
|Notice Little Guy photo bombing the picture of Buddy and I.|
|As you can see, bad air days make for not very good landscape pictures.|
We then walked from here (passing the Forbidden City) to Tiananmen Square stopping along the way to buy Chinese flags, Chinese flag heart stickers and dinner.

|We tried to get Little Guy to stand next to this woman in gold and black because they were about the same height. And a family stopped us to take a picture of Buddy with their similarly aged son.|
|We had okay food at the top corner restaurant on the way to Tiananmen Square, B tried this “fruit pancake” which was neither fruit nor pancake and was gross, and Squirt loved the Chinese flag.|
