What I did
Thankfully my host Hengna came to the rescue and met me at the Temple
What a way to spend a Sunday. Hengna was amazing as she fronted me money to repurchase my train ticket to Shanghai for $100USD, schleped around with me from Police station to agency where I bought my first train ticket with hopes that they could reissue me a new one, since they required my passport to book the ticket, from there to the train station until finally home.
That night we went for Peking duck, a Beijing speciality before Mr. Loo chaufered us to the Olympic Park to snap some photos. Unable to book a ticket for Monday I had another day in Beijing with which I got to business cancelling cards, ordering new ones and just relaxing at the apartment. I spent the last night having Korean BBQ with Hengna and her sister across the street at the mall which is also where Hengna’s office is located so I had a chance to see her office. It could be an office almost anywhere in the world, one large room with 100 computers but the interesting thing was that there were no real signs of individuality anywhere, each desktop was immaculate. Hengna’s sister spent the night in my room that night and the next morning I packed my bags, said farewell and headed for the train station.
