I went to Beijing in August of 2002 on business for HP, to attend the regional AP conference. While there I went with Norm and Sandy to see the Great Wall and the Forbidden City. The Wall is about an hour outside Beijing, and the City is right next to Tiananmen Square. Given the size and time it takes to see each of these places, we could only do these in the one day time we had available. Norm had a good digital camera and I used his pictures. I only had cheap throw away cameras and the quality was disappointing. At least now I have a decent digital camera, so next time I go I will be able to get some good pictures myself of the other attractions.
I split up the photos in two sections, one for the Wall and the other for the Forbidden City.
