Motorboating around the summer palace
Motorboating around the summer palace

Today we went to the Summer palace, it was very hot and there were lots of people about.  It was very pretty.

We took a motor boat across the lake then we went to get some lunch (bad japanese).

After that we went to call Corey’s sister to wish her a happy birthday.  I called papa and work and then we went home.

While getting a taxi back from the Summer palace the taxi guy was being a jerk and his meter was going crazy so I demanded we get out.  Typical bullshit.  So we jumped out on the highway and got another taxi.
