Ben wanted to see Mao's Mausoleum but unfortunately it is only open from 8 am to 12 pm. So instead we sat in front of it, still in awe of The Wall, we talked life, giggled at a couple of Chinese toddlers, and admired where we were sitting.

On Good Friday, we went for a very posh dinner at The Cut restaurant at the Fairmont Hotel in Beijing. We’d won vouchers from a magazine (surprise surprise!!) for a champagne brunch, but they stopped doing ...
