Tree in the forbidden city

July / Juillet 2009
The Forbidden City is a very large place to visit. But you will see almost no tree. The reason is a tree gave the possibility to a killer to hide himself and later try to reach the emperor. That's why you won't see any tree on almost all the pictures you'll see about this place. Only the north garden has some trees.
La Cité Interdite est un endroit très vaste à visiter. Mais vous n'y verrez quasiment aucun arbre. La raison en est qu'un arbre aurait pu permettre à un assassin de s'y cacher et donc d'atteindre l'empereur. C'est pourquoi vous ne verrez quasiment jamais d'arbre sur les photos de la Cité Interdite. Seul le jardin du nord dispose de quelques arbres.
