Oh my, am I sick. I should have stayed in bed today, but didn't want to miss out on seeing at least something in Beijing. But it's 2 in the afternoon and I'm headed back to bed ASAP.
Paul and I have both been sick, but I think he's starting to get a little better, which is good, because he's working harder.
I don't know what I have; I'm sure it doesn't matter. But since I'm in the MPC, and on my way to the pharmacy, I might actually stop and see the doctor.
So I went to see the Forbidden City -- full post on that tomorrow, when I can actually concentrate and post photos -- and it was pretty neat. But it's hot out. And there's no shade in the city -- which is a bit odd. The parks are nice, but the squares are just wide-open space. Here and there is a little tree, but it can't have been there very long judging by the size. And where you do find shade, you'll find a Chinese person or six crouching in it.
So I'm off to medicate and see if I can sleep this thing off ... whatever it is.
