In China - 1: Beijing's Forbidden City
I just returned from a 2-1/2-week holiday in China. Nothing more than scratching the surface, of course, as I logged about 4,300 kilometers of rail travel (plus a few hundred kilometers of boat and bus riding) going from Beijing to Hong Kong. But I'd never been to China, and a taste of this vast country is better than nothing at all.

And, of course, there's much to look forward to in future journeys.

To begin, let's start with Beijing's Forbidden City, once the exclusive home of emperors's families and imperial officials, now a popular historic attraction.
