Beijing – Lotus Lake, Drums Tower, and Bell Tower

Spent some of our October Break staying free at a teacher’s place in Beijing. Free place to stay and lots to do.  The first day we arrived around lunch so we headed to Lotus Lake, found an expensive place to eat lunch – great salad.  Then we walked around the lake, went on a boat and found the Drum and Bell Tower which had lots of stairs.
