The alarm went off at 330am and the phone echoed the urgency. Way too many beers. Completely irresponsible to think that I could tie one on the night before climbing on of man's most amazing structures. But I did and suffer for it I should.
My driver - Bruce - was waiting for me in the lobby at 430am. Luckily he didn't speak much English so I was able to close my eyes for the 1.5 hours drive to the section of the wall that he was taking me too (I specifically asked for ...
... further information about something specific. One thing that I remember was the Tiananmen Square Massacre that Jerry spoke about on the bus before we got to the square.

... the Beijing Olympic park, and a really quaint food street. Both of us had a great day, and Kevin was an excellent guide.
After tea we catch the subway to Olympic park for some the stadium light up. From our apartment it is 3 different subway trains to get there. All goes with catching the wrong one, and takes about 45 minutes. Their subway system is great and only costs 40 cents each. So cheap.
