Had trouble with the plumbing at 3 am one morning, but it was fixed in about 1/2 hr. A hose disconnected itself from behind the shower unit and was spraying hot water all around the bathroom. Actually we seemed to be the only people staying in the place and it was 28 stories high. We never saw anyone except for the security guard, cleaner and the plumber who came to fix the bathroom problem. The apartment was big, lounge, bathroom, dining room, kitchen & bedroom with marvellous views.
Not a 5 star place but certainly 3.5 - 4 star. Furniture a little old, but comfortable. Carpet old but clean. Mattress hard (as most Chinese hotels are). Location excellant, walking distance to shops and restaurants.

... at a concentration camp ~ very interesting stories. Newman got drunk on the firewater and talked too much. The ride back to the hotel tonight was beautiful again ~ Beijing has a goal to "light-up the city" so they have all of their pedestrian walkways and highways and roads lit-up with LED lights. Very interesting and pretty much what you would think of when you think of China ~ lots of flashing, neon lights everywhere. It is an overload of the senses. ...
... at times but never truly mean. Off course when I taught them for the first time, I was bricking it but as the days went on, teaching them became a breeze.
For the last week, as teachers we decided to alternate classes so that we would only have to teach 1 lesson 3 times rather than 3 separate lessons. Even though there was still a lot of planning to do, the second week became a lot easier than the first. As I mentioned in the last blog, a highlight of mine was a typical ...
... stared daggers. Only one of the men seemed to speak English and he was definitely the company comedian- every time he translated something I said, twenty people would look at me and scream with laughter. Still, I opted for having a sort-of seat and have questions about my marriage prospects every five minutes rather than stand for another thirteen hours. Upon arriving in Beijing I then got on a bus for half an hour in the wrong direction, ...
... You could also watch the artisans making the cloisonné pieces. Beautiful. We had the evening off to get ready for our flight to Xi'an in the a.m. We go right to the Terra Cotta Warriors. Really looking forward to it all. We are all doing great, making new friends and renewing acquaintances. Lots of new and delicious foods to try. Went to the little market by the hotel, lots of Heinz products translated into Chinese, a little weird seeing ketchup that way. More to come ...
... Fortunately, Fred and Heidi didn't rush us and we were able to stop along the way at the different towers or sections of the wall and take pics (as you can tell from the 100plus we took) or to have a quick water break. The hike to our tower from the farm took a little over four hours. And what a sense of accomplishment once we got there. Needless to say we were all a little grimy and super happy to put down our bags!
Past our tower were ...
