A Whirlwind Tour of Historic Beijing

I visited many historic places around Beijing today, starting with Wal Mart.
After Wal Mart, I took a subway to Tien' anman Square and the Forbidden City to see the historic Royal Palace.
From the Forbidden City we walked to the Temple of Heaven. We took a wrong turn and ended up down an alley, witnessing some incredible poverty, in the middle of one of the wealthiest cities in China. This is definitely still a developing country.
Finally... We made it to the Temple of Heaven. This is the Hall of Prayer.
It was a great day... Lots of walking; we covered almost 15 miles today, on foot.
