China (Beijing) Day 2 – Forbidden City

June 30th, 2012


So the plan for day 2 was:

  • TianAnMen Square
  • The Forbidden City
  • The Temple of Heaven
  • A visit to a silk factory

After spending 14 hours in the plane, I’m in a cozy bed in a hotel in Beijing.
Only to find Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, Google, Foursquare (on my phone for some reason, even though the normal website works fine), YouTube and other awesome sites to be completelly blocked… Well i knew about it, but dang yo 🙁

P.S. WordPress is blocked too, but for some reason i can still write blog posts through the iOS app *_*
