Further Along the Central Axis at the Ming Tombs
Yesterday I mentioned the central axis in Beijing, the spiritual line that goes straight through the ancient city. There are all kinds of interesting monuments and things to visit along this axis, but very very far north are the Ming Tombs. These things are spread out and require a lot of walking, but the walks are quite beautiful. It's strange to be in such a tight congested city but then have these massive swaths of open areas. Hardly anyone ever comes to these places, so there is plenty of solitude, which is a welcome respite from the chaos of the rest of Beijing!
