... a bit of a work out in itself. Uneven stairs, and quite steep inclines mean that it can be tough going, and explains why we are a little disheveled and sweaty in some of the photos! Unfortunately the air quality wasn't great so the views weren't quite as spectacular as they could have been, but we once again lucked out in there being very few other tour groups or visitors (relatively) there at the time. The whole section at Jurong Pass was actually a ...
... or so I thought!!
After leaving the palace grounds, we decided to look for Wangfujing street to do some shopping. It took us a while but we finally found it. It was pretty hard to miss, the crowds were worse than the Forbidden City!! The food that China is famous for could be found everywhere... on a stick. We saw scorpions and other creepy crawlies, snakes and starfish, and even small birds that looked about the same size as the ones flying around the ...
... it was amazing! Everyone in their life should see the Great Wall.
The next day we headed out to get train tickets to Xi'an and explore more of Beijing. We found the Donghuamen night markets and tried a few Chinese snacks. It was really yummy, I had a peking duck pancake and dumplings they were tasty! We just walked around all day really, Bejing is a massive city with a heck of a lot of people! We were looking forward to our next destination..... Xi'an!

After the lesson, I went with a group of people to the phone store. A girl named Becca needed a new phone.
When we were done at the store, I went to a on campus store, where I ran into Eileen. I brought flip-flops, fruit roll-ups, and yogurt in a milk cart.
Eileen and I walked back to the dorm. Now, I am watching the Avengers with a group of people in the lounge.
... out for drinks with some friends at a local bar. We caught up about the last few years, reminiced about our time spent in Tanzania and had a wonderful few hours. Overall, Beijing was about what I expected it to be... lots of neon red signs, cars and people everywhere, beautiful mountains just out of the city, and good food. Someday I would like to explore more of China, but for now this was a great glimpse into the country and a great visit with an old friend.
