Summer Palace

After finding local bus 375, I was on my way to the Summer Palace — which it turns out is several hours out of the city.  My favorite part of the Summer Palace was “Longevity Hill,” which I wandered around first.  It was incredibly pleasant, climbing over rocks and having small temples and pagodas around each corner.  I sat and finished Kite Runner; there were 3 women playing a card game just over the way from me.
