Meanwhile, an update on my parents' trip: they checked in from Beijing tonight, after an incredibly busy day. Today alone, they were able to visit Tienanmen Square, the Forbidden City, the Summer Palace, the Hutongs, and take in an acrobatics performance! On the schedule tomorrow: The Great Wall and Ming Tombs. They sounded very happy and have lucked out with weather so far. Though the ground is covered in snow (and they report having yet to see a single snow plow - all of the clearing is being done by hand), they've had bright blue, sunny skies!
