Michelle Tours Forbidden City During China Trip
Michelle Obama kicks off her week-long trip to China with a tour of the Forbidden City, accompanied by the Chinese First Lady.
First lady Michelle Obama has tried her hand at Chinese calligraphy and toured the Forbidden City at the start of a week-long trip to China.
Mrs Obama was joined by Peng Liyuan, the glamorous wife of Chinese President Xi Jinping.
It was the first meeting between the two women, who are seen as style icons in their respective nations and whose husbands run the world's first and second largest economies.
Mrs Obama visited a high school in Beijing that prepares students to attend university abroad.
There, the US First Lady played table tennis and practised writing the Chinese character for "eternal" under the guidance of a 16-year-old student.
"I'm nervous," Mrs Obama said.
"Don't be nervous," Mrs Peng replied in English.
During her trip, the US First Lady is expected to stay away from contentious issues such as China's human rights record and cyber security.
Instead she will focus on education, culture and "soft" diplomacy.
She is accompanied by her daughters Malia and Sasha and mother Marian Robinson.
Mrs Obama, accompanied by Mrs Peng, also went to the Forbidden City, Beijing's sprawling complex that was the seat of Chinese power for centuries.
On Saturday, she is due to speak at the prestigious Peking University and on Sunday visit the Great Wall.
A visit to the northern city of Xi'an, home to the famed Terra Cotta Warriors Museum, and to a panda breeding facility outside Chengdu in southwestern China are also on the agenda.
