Andrea this is great that you had the opportunity to go on this trip!
One question...why is it called the Forbidden City? I am not up on my Chinese History.
Love you

its called the forbidden city because no non-chinese officials and royalty could enter the city. The thousands of servants that they had were specially trained from birth to work there. So as a commoner or as a foreigner you would never be alowed within the walls of the palace/city.
