Would anybody be so kind to help me with names of lakes in Beijing? I need these names in pinyin, if it is possible.
These two are from Barbara Hambly's "The Magistrates of Hell": Stone Relics of the Sea and the Golden Sea. The first is "the two unwalled artificial lakes in the northern part of the city", and the second is a place where President Yuan's (Yuan Shi-k’ai) residence took place in 1912.
I'd think, the second one is Zhongnanhai, though I'm not sure.
