Gemma’s Travel Diary

Saturday, 16 Dec 2006

Location: China

MapToday it was extremely cold. - 4 degrees with an extremely harsh wind chill factor. we had 4 layers on and it was still cold. it was colder today than any day we spent in the himalayas in nepal!!!

we brave tianamen square - lined up and saw Chairmen Mao's frozen body and pay our respects to the communist regime.

also went to the forbidden city - where we saw amazing treasures from the ancient world. but sadly the 2 main buildings were being renovated.

unfortunately the day was unpleasant because it was just so cold!!! we headed straight to the markets to buy gloves and scarfs.

tomorrow it is going to be atleast -9 degress. wish us luck, but now we are off to see kung fu.
