Small Courtyard Hotel with lovely staff and a very friendly feel. The staff were great at suggesting good spots to eat and arranged an excellent driver for our excursion to The Great Wall. The breakfasts were lovely and we also enjoyed having cocktails on the roof after a long day walking Beijing. Great location, definitely organise to be collected from the airport as Taxis don't like going into the Hutongs.

And I'm thinking, Oh no, no water allowed and we either have to down a quart of water each on the spot or lose our bottles. In the back of my mind lurks the realization that China mostly has squat toilets, which we had so far avoided, but downing a quart of water... Once again we agreed that yes, ...
... to Beijing for today. Month-ago Kim would have never in her mind thought about buying a ticket the day of, and subsequently booking a hotel the night that she was either to arrive in Beijing or stay in Shanghai. She was much more prepared, and the anxiety of not knowing would have thrown her for a loop. However, in a month (and maybe because I do have nothing but time, and therefore am forcing myself to ride with the punches more) I'm now becoming okay just going with the flow. But ...
... to make the best of a bad situation so i looked at the beautiful eyes of the bank clerk. It was the first time i had really noticed the difference in the hair of Chinese men. The lovely man I adore in NZ has soft bouncy hair whereas a lot of men have far coarser wiry hair like my father. Of course i hate most Chinese women for their beautiful straight hair!!
Our first port of call was the Bell and Drum tower via a slight detour. James had mentioned ...
