The end of our first Chinese experience and on to the next adventure: Shanghai! The week in Beijing went by at times lightning fast, and at others painfully slow. I am glad to escape the cold, (although apparently the dampness in Shanghai makes it feel equally as bad at times) but I'm also sad that the Beijing portion of our trip (AKA the hardest most independent part of the trip) came and went so fast.
