This place is alright I guess. I've stayed here twice now only because the company I work for, Teach and Travel China (TTC) paid for it. I would not stay here if I had to pay for it. They have free internet in the rooms but that's about the only good thing about this place. They advertise an in-door pool but that's not true and I thought it had a bad smell about the place. I woke up with a headache everyday.

This is also where I think I did my “super good deed” which I felt I deserve karma point for forever!...though perhaps this self-immortalizing attitude cancels it out altogether BUT SCREW THAT ha…so right before mile 24 (the last 2 miles are all downhill and straight into the finish!) so right before you get off the grueling wall and start to descend there ...
... then went past the park to a mini outdoor market, where kids ran up to us shouting "Hello! Hello!", broad, mischievous smiles on their faces as they inspected the foreigners. We also watched two men take live fish from a pool and kill and skin them for customers. After that we went back to the hotel and it was off to dinner.
We ate dinner at Chun Man Yuan 春满园, where we we led to a corner of the restaurant into a private room. The ...
... Robert with a VPN installation so that he could use twitter and his bank account, both of which were blocked by Chinese firewalls. Shortly after went back to our own hotel in another taxi this time unfortunately hitting a small dog on route. Never a dull ride in taxi’s on this trip that’s for sure.
After a nice lay in we popped out for lunch and spent a couple of hours having a drink in the glorious sunshine. ...
