After lunch and a short nap, we took the Metro out to the Yiheyuan/Summer Palace (note: for only 2RMB each). It continued to be heavily overcast.
Beigongmen/North Palace Gate:
Suddenly, a gusting rainstorm started. We took refuge on a covered bridge with umbrellas as a defensive wall, but the rain was blown sideways and drenched our pants:
Unfortunately they were closing the palace, so we had to leave from the East Side Gate. Could not find the Metro station here, so took a taxi back to the hotel for 120RMB!
