The room was clean and comfortable, but the tub drained so slow even for a shower you ended up with several inches of water in the bottom. Very nice getting two bottles of water a day complimentary. And a great little grocery store just down the road where you can get a 20 oz soda bottle for abotu $$0.50 :o)

My first task ...

Finalmente Pechino! Il primo approccio con la citta' mi lascia perplessa: le strade, gli edifici, gli spazi, (quadrati o rettangolari) sono abnormi; ho la sensazione di essere piccola piccola. E penso che questo sia lo scopo di tanta grandezza.
Arriviamo in questa immensa citta', la "Capitale del Nord" (questo e' ...
Arrival in China was very uneventful. In spite of only having an hour to connect in Sydney, I managed to make the plane about twenty minutes before departure- duly the last person to board. Although my flight from Shanghai was delayed, I arrived in Beijing only an hour late, at a bit past midnight.
Our hostel is really great. It is in a tiny historical lane (called a Hutong) and is barely big enough to fit ...
