During the second week in Beijing, we had a chance to visit Forbidden City. It was a home of the Emperor, ceremonial and political centre of Chinese government from the mid-Ming Dynasty to the end of the Qing Dynasty. We booked few vans to bring all of us there. Forbidden City was full of visitors who came from all over the world. It was difficult for us to take nice picture without captured other visitors. We took a lot of pictures there. I didn’t own a digital camera at that time, thus need to request my colleagues to take pictures for me. Luckily, there were many cameramen among us who willing to take some pictures for me. Finally, I can post pictures to my blog from my collection .
