The hotel has a beautiful lobby, but service is a little on the skimpy side. It was hard for my friend to get service in the lobby lounge. The hotel was packed during spring festival, so by the itme we checked in, there were no rollaway beds available and we had to settle for a pallet made from some douve' s for one of us to sleep on. The western restaurant was quite good and the breakfast Buffet was as well. Still need to teach people in China how to make coffee. it's very strong and bitter.

How strange that it is a way of life for these people to open their homes ...
... it's a battle of wills between you and the driver. I have become our lollipop lady, even in front of jade! Wading out into the traffic on a zebra crossing and putting my hands up to stop the cars, often accompanied by shouting "the man is green so stop trying to run me over you *******!", with the others scuttling across behind me. I'm not afraid!
14:41 We walked up yet more steps (im so over steps and hills at this point) and came up to the Thousand Hand Buddha - it had 24 hands ...
We lost almost a day in Beijing making future travel plans as the Chinese National Day was about to be upon us. Although the celebration on October 1 is for the birth of the People's Republic of China, most Chinese get off an entire week and the converge on every city in China for the full week. Hostels would be full, trains would be booked - we knew it was going to be a mad house, so we scrambled to get all our advanced plans out of the ...
