slow tourism day

I dunno if it was jetlag, or just general fatigue, but we slept in until 2pm today, so not much tourism will get done doing that! We walked to the Temple of the Good Harvest (I hoped to cast a blessing for my brother's crops) but it was closing when we got there. The park surrounding it is nice though. The temple is where the emperor used to come to pray for good harvests. It's quite elaborate with a 500m long 'road' for him to walk.

We're aiming to sample food from main areas of China: had contonese the other night (basically normal chinese food), then some Sichuan (not big fans of it but the face changing performance was cool) and finally Mongolian (which was good).
