Very cute, traditional chinese style hotel. If you are looking for something basic, this is the perfect place. Close to the subways, and the city center. The staff is friendly and helpful, and speak english quite well. The area is safe, with the police station at the end of the road. The only downside could be the restaurant across the street is noisy at night (however I never found it to be a problem). If you are sensitive to noise when trying to sleep, the back courtyard blocks most of the sound. This is a wonderful hotel, for a great price! Thanks to Bob and Jenny for everything!

... neat and tidy Russian providnitsa?
The border crossing lived up to its reputation of taking about six hours. The train shunted back and forth between the Mongolian station and the Chinese station more times than seemed necessary.

The streets around the hotel come to life at night. There are heaps of restaurants and bars and backpacker places in the side streets. We managed to get a table upstairs at one and get beer and food ordered. Max insisted on the toffee bananas for dessert. We ordered one rice and that ...
... get some movies. So I tagged along with them along with Louis outside of north gate. Valetina, Andrea, and I saw a clothing boutique store. We entered it and all the stuff were so overpriced. No way that the dresses were worth over six-hundred yuan. What a ripoff.
I returned to my room later. Some time later, I heard people talking loud in the hallway. I opened my door and turned out that it was Louis and Andrea. Louis approached me and said ...
... so had to leave. The guy looked disappointed but called for the bill.
He pulled out his wallet which I saw contained a stack of neatly ironed 100yuan notes and I finally understood what was going on. He looked at the bill and put six or seven down on the table, and then the waitress showed the bill to me.
The exchange rate for pounds to yuan is about 1pound=10yuan. The total of the bill was over 1250yuan. So over 120pounds for a beer, some ...
... but there are 5 million cars and 8 million bikes on the roads. Gridlock is a way of life in the city, so the government instituted a car policy based on the last number of the license plate. For example, on Tuesdays, only cars whose license plates end in 2 or 8 are allowed on the roads. Wednesdays only cars whose license plates end in 3 or 9 can drive, etc. While the policy limits the number of cars, it doesn’t really alleviate ...
