A Summer Palace Would Be Lovely

December 4, 2013 — Leave a comment

The Summer Palace is what it sounds like. It was the summer home to the Emperor. Here are two facts you should know about it.

  1. The water you see is a man made lake.
  2. The Emperor ordered the workers have their hands chopped off so that they could never recreate it.

Clarence got a cool Chinese version of himself on a plate for basically $2. Also, there were several international groups checking the palace out from places like France, Japan and Spain. There was a boat made of pure marble on the water. It’s just a different way lot living, isn’t it?

One can dream.
