Picture 018



The Gate of Heavenly Peace is the initial entrance to the Forbidden City (or Palace Museum as it is officially known).  When I took this picture I was standing in Tian’anmen Square shortly after the dawn flag raising ceremony.  I had traveled to Beijing on an overnight train that arrived around 5am.  Since we were already up, and it was too early to go to the hostel, we went for the daily ceremony (October 2005).
