Tiananmen Square

I finally made it to Tiananmen Square in the heart of Beijing and at a time when the rest of the world is opening up, China has things locked down. This was as close as I could get and these are the clearest photos. That is due to all the security, umbrellas, vehicles and everything else they put in the way. What is really silly, stupid, insane, choose your preferred adjective, is that they have the whole street blocked off and you must first register on a website for a reservation number to go stand outdoors in order to take photos, where it couldn’t be better ventilated, to protect against COVID, somehow that registration number makes you healthy and safe.
