SARS in Beijing 2003

Taihedian and Zhonghedian - April 26, 2003 1445 hours

Remember the pictures from the first page with a few hundred visitors in front of Taihedian?

Today was strikingly different with hardly anyone in sight...


Taihedian - Hall of Supreme Harmony
- with two tourists halfway up the right, marble staircase.

Zhonghedian - Hall of Perfect Harmony - with 6 tourists:
2 sitting front left, 1 behind them and 3 in the far back right
