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.

Walking through the gates thousands of people crowded the pathway and stairs as we climbed our way to the palace. Once we reached the top there was a temple room dedicated to Buddha. The only light entering the room was from the doorway and in the middle was a giant statue of Buddha that stood about 20 feet. It was beautiful, the walls and ceiling ...
... of fish in a tiny pool I couldn't snag my supper! Amy managed to catch one in just a few minutes but she was the only one to succeed. The fish was great, though we hardly made a dent into all the food William had provided for us. And later the bull frog was interesting, if a little bony!
And so back to our very smoky hotel for the last night in Beijing before moving southwards. Look out for the next exciting Chinese instalment from Xi-an.
... I was facing the sun. The ones I did take are more to remind me than anything else. I was at my hotel by 12pm and had an early lunch. Then, I set off up to the wall. This, so far, is the highlight of my trip and when I arrived on the wall it didn't disappoint. The location was perfect as there really were very few people around - ...
... people when I am on the go.
As we were walking to the subway station, Shari and I were far ahead of the group. We did not care to wait. Out of everyone, Shari is one of the few people that I consider a friend. We get along very well.
Shari revealed that it was Jean who found the quicker way to Tienanmen Square.
On the subway, when we were transferring for a different line, I lost Shari in the crowd. I ended up getting on the train ...
... one for foreigners and one older, more authentic section in a state of disrepair. This section was very picturesque and just how you see it in photos and articles online. But it was very steep. And long. Out of an original length of 6,000km, this section was just 4.5km long, but the heat and steps meant we only had enough time for about half of it. Still, it was incredible to view this world wonder with such a long and interesting history. First built as an earth and mud ...
