After our Great Wall climb, we were hungry so our driver found us a great resturant nearby. A real hole in the wall with great food. Again, it was an authentic meal because there was no translation (again, thankful for LKL, who picked us out some great food). One of the dishes was a chicken and veggie dish whose taste was very reminiscent of buffalo chicken, chinese-style.
Almost all of us fell asleep on our way to the Summer Palace, where we only had 2 hours before it closed. We raced through and took as many pictures as possible and sat in a lot of Beijing rush-hour traffic on a Friday night which was apparently the worst time of all.
For dinner we had Peking Duck - it was VERY delicious. It was at a place recommended by the hotel, so a little pricey compared to some of our previous meals, but still worth it. We also had a great eggplant dish which probably had plum and black bean sauce and was AMAZING. No pictures of this meal since my camera battery died while we were downstairs and I had no spares with me.

I think we're nearing the end of the China Adventure. Only one more day to post about, I think and then a wrap up post or two, perhaps. Temple of Heaven and the Wangfujing Snack Street. Those are posts you don't want to miss.
