After stowing our luggage at the hostel were Elise and I were staying at in Beijing together, Elise, Ben and I went to Explore Temple of heaven. They had beautiful buildings and gardens - I just had to pretend I didn't know that the temple was once for animal sacrifices!
I was pretty exhausted after the traveling and walking around Beijing, so if my memory serves me right [I am writing this months after I returned!], Elise and I went back to hostel to rest.
That evening we went to a pretty neat acrobatics show - however having been to Cirque du Soleil, I have to be honest and say that although it was impressive, it wasn't nearly as amazing.
