China - Our first day was Tien An Men Square.  We had been there only minutes before the loud speaker declared in many different languages, including two different English accents, "Due to urgent official business, please clear the square".  It wasn't long before the soldiers lined up to start herding tourists, hustlers et al off the square.

After the square, we visited the Forbidden City.  Some of us enjoyed the local delicacies - candied crabapples and mandarin orange slices.  Others just enjoyed the sights.
