Summer Palace was built for summer vacation when the weather was hot in Forbidden City. Meanwhile, China was close to being changed into a republic. The Emperor pretended everything was fine but a majority of the country was in poverty. The longest walkway is over 870 meters long. Inside are over 10,000 paintings from four traditional stories. Stone boat cost over a million ton of silver.
When people built Beijing, they built each house like a garden right outside of Forbidden City. There are not many traditional house left today. Mr. Wang is forth generation to live at this family owned house. Right next door, the house is in the process to be rebuilt. His bird can speak, like hello, how are you, good bye. Very interesting.
