Although my room was rather small, it was clean and neat. The people at the front desk were all helpful and accommodating.

G's Chinese came in handy. We were lost on the palace grounds and we wanted to see a certain thing before they closed. We were thinking of starting to panic. He asked someone for directions and they understood him! We are going to eat at the hostel tonight. Our walking desires have reached their end for today. They will cook something for us. The subway works so well. It is short sleeves and sandals ...
... that a traditional home in the hutong area had no toilet facilities of their own and hence utilised public facilities. Asif actually ventured into one desperate for a pee and was welcomed by an open room with no dividers, no toilet paper and no sink with a few men squatting whilst doing their business looking at one another! It was our first real dose of uncomfortable circumstances and all taken in good jest, after all such situations was some of the reason ...
