Dressed for a Minnesota winter, I climbed The Great Wall on a cold, rainy day in March 2008.
Using great care, I slowly pushed open the massive door leading to a place I was not to enter ...... The Forbidden City in Beijing.
Feeling like the Emperor himself, I strolled around the mystical grounds of The Forbidden City.
On a foggy morning, I slowly walked along the mote, that for centuries has been protecting The Forbidden City from common folk like me.
