Beijing
I am disappointed with the photo CD from Wolf Camera and plan to scan better versions of the pictures later.

A recurring pattern throughout China seemed to be: the more important the site, the bigger.  If that correlation holds for cities, Beijing is a spectacularly important city.  I knew that the imperial capitol was known as The Forbidden City, but it never occurred to me that it would actually be as large as a small city, enclosed by a wall and moat.
