Last week I was on vacation in Beijing and visited the Summer Palace. A lot of the signs and the audio guide kept referring to the Anglo-Saxons burning and looting the palace in 1860. My friend had no clue what this was about so I explained the opium wars and such. An older Chinese man overheard me and was very impressed with my knowledge! So thanks to Cole and this game I made an older Chinese man's day! Thanks Cole!

PS The summer Palace is amazing and well worth the visit. I enjoyed it more than the Forbidden City! The audio guide was also filled with stories about Empress Dowager Cixi and most of them were amazing.
