Day 191: Summer Palace

Suzhou Street, Summer Palace

Suzhou Street, Summer Palace

Our son is visiting from the USA for the summer and we are playing tourist, yesterday it was the Great Wall, today, the Summer Palace. We rode the metro from our hotel in Chaoyang to the UNESCO World Heritage Site Summer Palace Yesterday, at the Great Wall, the weather was overcast and in the 80’s, but today the sun rose high and hot and by midday was blistering the ground in the mid 90’s creating a good business for the water vendors. Air quality remained at a moderate 84–about 200 points below what I’ve come to expect– so all in all, a great day for being in Beijing.
