Will and I arrived at The Friendship Hotel, Beijing after our long train journey from Nanjing, to start lesson observations at RDFZ with the rest of the team.
We decided to start in style and visited the new Waldorf Astoria Hotel for a cocktail. They have built a hutong with bedrooms and a swimming pool behind the hotel. We were unable to see that today, but met ...
... lunch stopping at a beachside area for a swim if the weather is good. PM: Drive back to Pyongyang (4 hrs with break at the Sinpyong resthouse halfway), We’ll stop in at the Pyongyang Shooting Range which is where DPRK’s Olympic shooters practice with sports weapons, have a try yourself if you like, it does also have a bar for those who like to combine shooting and drinks (there are safety regulations!), and final farewell dinner.

Hope you all have a very lovely day tomorrow, and Happy Christmas to all our friends and family & lots of love from us both in Beijing.
