Day 90 – Ryan’s Birthday in Beijing, China
Today is my husband’s Birthday! We began the day by taking the metro to the train station to purchase our tickets to Lhasa. Although it will be quite expensive, we are extremely excited about our upcoming adventure to Tibet. Upon securing our tickets, we headed to The Summer Palace where we had a lovely day. The Summer Palace is a former summer retreat of the royals. It is a UNESCO site situated on a beautiful lake. After exploring the Palace’s magnificent gardens, we hopped on the metro to visit Beijing’s Olympic Park. The Beijing National Stadium (a.k.a “the bird nest”) is a VERY cool structure.
