Being a weekend, the square was packed and it felt at times that we were there along with 20 of Beijing's 25 million inhabitants. I tried (but failed due to fumbling iPhone fingers) to take a photo that would have been a classic - an old Chinese guy wearing a t-shirt with a well known Dead Kennedy's song title on it standing in front of the big painting of Mao. Next time.
Anyway, with a gorgeous day on Tuesday, I thought a lightning visit there, via the subway, was in order - to catch William up as it were. The sky was clearer and the crowds slightly less with maybe more obvious tourists but William and I enjoyed it.
