Top Class Hotel, with the old fashion courtesy! Breakfast included in price. English was lacking in the attendants at the desk. But over-all the rooms were spacious and had all the comforts.

Today marks our fifth and final day trekking on the wall and was a pretty emotional day for me. A chance to let go of all the things that have held me back in the past and throw them over the side on the highest part of our trek today.

... Our guide on the bus was very good, great English and she told us lots of things about the Chinese way of life, family, etc. and she made everything very interesting.
We arrived at the Forbidden City which was an amazing place but very crowded - full of Chinese and tourists - there were 16 buses from Aurora!! The City was built in 1406 and covers 250 acres. Lots of palaces, statues and gardens - nothing like we know - huge rock formations - wierd looking ...
... model of Beijing and also a model of the new central business area which is going to have some amazing buildings to add to what it already has! After an hour or so i went on a hunt for something indoors to do to escape the rain, however Beijings main sights are all outside, so back to the hostel it was for a burger and beer. Today seemed like a good day to meet up with a couple of students i taught ...
