we slept in this morning until 8:00. Then we followed our trusty guide

Emperor had over 3,000 concubines (that's why this palace is so big).

for $1; she sure blended into the crowd. Random people kept asking to
get their pictures taken with her. No one asked me though -- it must have
been the hat.
