... traffic, we had the chance to see the immense Tiananmen Square, infamous for the repression in China. We turned our heads and we saw the entrance of the majestic Forbidden City, which we hope to visit soon.

... We had a simple day wonder around the city centre lakes, eating ice cream, watching the world go by. Also went to the former home of Soong Ching Ling (no, me neither) but it was a lovely place to be.

Saw Rik for the last time (he's was heading to Shanghi on the evening train to study for 5 months at the university) and had a couple of beers. He bought us a bottle of Chinese booze to say thank you for being such great cabin buddies on the trans-Mongolian and also gave us ...
