... We inhaled our food and crawled in bed by 7:30. Unfortunately, however, I woke up at 2:30 am (it was after 7 hours of sleep, after all), and I must now confess that I haven't addressed the jet lag thing very well.

It could only get better from there! Which it thankfully did as we found a great hostel, closer to ...
... with some retired men performing Chinese opera. The temple is an amazing group of very old structures with names like the Shed of Sacrifice, hall of prayer for good harvests, Imperial vault of heaven and the echo wall. Definitely worth a visit. We had lunch in at typical Beijing-style noodle house, where someone ordered silk worm pupae by mistake. I do not recommend it, but the noodles were great.
