Off to Beijing out of Osaka without a hitch - except I forgot my umbrella on the plane, a reflection of my subconscious, no doubt (Kanazawa is depressingly rainy). Bought another one in Beijing but after a month got tired of carrying around a giant umbrella and left it in Denmark (another rainy place). Took bus into the city - lots of looks from Chinese on bus, as I guess only locals use the (cheap) bus in. Booked some tours at my hostel - PM saw Peiking opera. Very cool! - has been a dream to watch since seeing Farewell my Concubine many years ago, a favorite movie. Ate pizza next to Monkey Business where I picked up my train tix. Little did I know it was to be my last normal dinner for a long while...
