This morning start way to early. We thought (hoped) if our Marco (3 year old) went to bed at midnight that he will sleep little longer - NOPE - we got 3:30 am wake up call and he was ready. This was not very good outlook for today. With counting all of that Marco did awesome.
We started around 8 am with taking subway to Tianamen square (sorry do not remember spelling and my DH is sleeping already). As Nancy (another and more experience adoptive parent) described on her post it was easy. And yes we got in one of those crowded trains where you have to push your body inside of the train, just like Nancy described. Buying tickets was also very easy. There was very nice young man who offered and helped buy our tickets. On the way back we graduate to buying them our selfs. It also helps that our Pentax hotel is right next to Subway station. On that note - we love the hotel, but if you want to stay here get the executive room. Those are the renovated ones, the rest is being renovated. Down site is the renovation during the day.
So first stop was Tianamen square. We did to spent much time here. Next we headed to Forbidden City. Here I will stop and say we just walked it without guy. Brent downloaded guide app on his phone for this tour. Otherwise you can hire someone right there to guide you.
So we headed back to Tianamen square and than back to hotel for needed nap, not only Marco's but ours also.
Can't you tell who got tired here:)
Tomorrow we are headed for Great Wall and Summer Palace. We have hired guide/driver "John yellow car", who was recommended by adoptive families. He is picking us up early. On that note I am going to leave and get ready.
