Where I stayed
Tiananmen Sunrise Hostel
We went to the Summer Palace early doors this morning under a bizarre kind of sepia sky and poor visability, it was also very gusty and we kept getting face whacked by dust clouds. This didn't improve and it may be the revenge of the Beijing Fonejacker from yesterday as a lot of people were 'Fonejackered' up today. The temple was fairly average by the standards Beijing has set so far
We had to leave the Summer Palace early as I got a telegram from the LEAS requesting I return at once to collect a petition. Unfortunately it only had one signature that was made anonomously. Oh well she'll have to contine with her begging bowl and eye patch.
We then had an early lunch and I had my last Hot and Sour soup before we have to find a bus to get to the airport. Thats pretty much it today. Lots of comments on the blog over the last week keep it up, we look forward to your comments.
We will leave you with the weather forecast for Delhi (we just dont seem to be able to get a reasonable balance):
Unseasonably hot with scorching sunshine.
Eggsy edit: Just to mention that Andrew today got stuck in the underground, he will not admit that he lost his ticket but feels sure that he was pickpocketed (bear in mind that a ticket costs 20p and it only gets you out of the station) - he also had the camera, money, and cashcard in this pocket so this seems highly unlikely.
Also a quick note of thanks to the LEAS: Feel free to forge as many signatures as you like to strenghthen your case!!! I havent got a pop to pee in!
