Beihai Park, Beijing: 100 reviews and 180 photos

  Austrian Emperor of China
by socrates_07

Now I wanna tell you how I became 'Emperor of China', somehow a funny story.

Wendy and I took some photos at the Dragon screen in Beihai Park when we saw some people who wanted to catch tourists for a photo dressed as Emperor or Empress of China. Wendy asked me if I am interested. My answer: 'No, I am not such a typical tourist who will dress himself for a silly photo'. We passed them and Wendy wanted to convince me again. I repeated my decision. Then she told me that the swiss boy friend of her friend also took such a photo: 'Well, I am not like others, I think its really silly to take such a photo. Me, dressed as an Emperor, no way!!'. 'But it costs only 10 Yuan', her answer. '10 Yuan, only???.... Hmmm, maybe it's really funny, lets try it.' ... You see, for 10 Yuan I do a lot... (Please, dont misunderstand me... ;-))
