Imperial Palace with Janie

    On 22 February 2005, four days after I arrived in Beijing, I was able to meet my friend Janie (Jiang Yan), from Guiyang, for a day. She had been studying English at the New Oriental School for several weeks, and had just finished a day or two before, and was to leave for home the next day. I decided to show her the Imperial Palace, as I am familiar with it from previous visits there.
    Unfortunately, half of it was blocked off for reconstruction, so we had a short tour. That was OK, because the day was very cold. But it was sunny and bright, and the pictures came out well. I hope you enjoy them.
