Few years ago I took a trip to China. From all the things there I most liked the Forbidden City. Being an Anchee Min and Lisa See fun, I could easily imagine walking thru the streets of City in some different era, admiring peonies or so. I even missed a trip to Great Wall of China the next day, only to come back to Forbidden City and admire the jewelry and watches collection again. If you like it too, you can find beautiful photos of the City here, and article about exhibition of Quing Dinasy robes here.
