This is the view outside the Forbidden City. We were told we cannot go inside because we only had 30 minutes and the tour would take 2 - 3 hours. BUT... a friendly (and money-hungry) guide just sort of showed up and offered us a "deal" ... 30 minute tour PLUS a ride back to the hotel and then the airport. (Capitalism is alive and well in China!)
