... more sleep. I got ready and headed downstairs for breakfast, not before knocking on Raaj's door to get him up as he'd requested the night before. I was down at the buffet at 6:45, popped my head in, and there was no-one in there but the staff. I left and sent messages around asking if anyone was alive, but the responses didn't begin rolling in until 7:00. I ended up going down to the bottom floor to meet those who did turn up, and we waited for a few more to join us. We made ...

So this is one of the things you have to do when you come to Beijing...have Peking Duck.

... pumpkin porridge and a boiled egg for about 7 RMB. Then we were off.
First was getting to Forbidden City. We took a bus, which was only 1 RMB, then a subway, which was only 2 RMB. For those who aren't familiar with Chinese money: 1 USD = 6 RMB. When we got there everyone had to go to the bathroom, which is when I got my first experience with a Chinese ...

... our hotel to the Bell Tower and the Drum Tower. Built on the central axis of the city which leads directly to the Forbidden City, in ancient times the bell rang at 6am every morning and the drum sounded at 7pm every evening to signal the start and the end of the day. Although it was already closed (it was 5pm already), Fan wangled us in to a tea ceremony within the Bell Tower and we were introduced to the delights of the Tea in China. A tea lady - she was so much more than ...
