    Beijing day 1

    Smooth & calm flight; around 9000 KM from Zürich to Beijing. Thanks to our early arriving (6:40 in the morning), we could start our visit to The Forbidden City (called The Palace Museum) before the big rush. This place is huge; we spent / walked around for more than 3 hours there and visited the main parts, the garden and a clock museum. …

    ... ul>We agreed to go by train which seemed to be the cheapest (RMB 6 per person), the fastest (only 1 hour) and the most comfortable way how to overcome the distance between Beijing and Badaling. We wanted to catch the one departing at 7.58.

    ... and with aching feet, we headed back to the hostel for a much needed rest. I sewed, and then duct-taped as my sewing skills weren't up to scratch, my new rucksack which had already ripped 5 days into the trip. Then we headed out to Beihai North lake that we'd visited on day 3 to get some food and browse some more shops as we knew it was such a lovely, and lively, area. On the way we picked up some melon on a stick from a street seller to eat as we walked in the sun. I ...

    ... sudden a bus arrives and everyone makes a run for it, I think we need to get on it but I have no idea where it goes, in true Chinese style I push on and we get on the bus and are pushed and shoved even more. Mark thinks I was brave to get on the bus, I thought if we get lost them he can figure out where we need to go!!!! Anyway we arrive at the right stop, thank goodness.

    The Forbidden City is OK, it's huge which is pretty breathtaking in itself and ...

    Another Brick in the Wall

    ... was probably going to find somewhere to sit down and read my book they didn't object or try to force the issue but as the conversation was ending one of them said, "Maybe we go for coffee later?" Honestly, I really wasn't too bothered but they spoke enough English for conversation and I felt like being polite, so I agreed and we strolled in no particular direction. After reading about the tea scam I really should have seen it coming and in actual fact when she'd asked me I'd run it ...
