#478 – Temple of heaven park

This was drawn on our second day in Beijing. On our first day we arrived on an overnight train from Xian and went straight to the Forbidden City only to find unbelievable crowds and that after hours of queuing up they had sold out of tickets (there is a limit of 80,000/day). Although we tried to get tickets for the next day, you can only be sure to get them online and if you are Chinese…not very helpful. So we gave up on the idea and visited the Temple of Heaven instead which was much more manageable. It’s a huge place and has some wonderful buildings – but it was too hot to sketch in the open air!
