Standing Where Mao Stood

In all of our years of living in Beijing, we had never climbed up the stairs to look out over Tian'anmen Square from the gate tower where Chinese leaders address the nation on important occasions. Most famously, it was at this very spot where Mao Zedong announced the establishment of the People's Republic of China on October 1, 1949.

For everyone back in the States, happy 4th of July from us four wayward Americans!
