(Continued from Day 3)
I woke up Sunday detoxified of smoke, and was ready to head out to Beihai Park, a lovely park just west of the Forbidden City. It is one of the oldest, largest, and best preserved ancient imperial gardens. It is a classic combination of the grandiosity of China’s northern gardens and the refinement of China’s southern gardens.
The park has a big lake with an island in the center.
