Well what a day we've have had today. Firstly it was our 1st day in our new jobs. Secondly this is Andy writing this so watchout for the spelling mistakes.

The day started bright and early at 7.45am with ironing shirts and the normal morning things. Which to be quite honest wasn't as easy as it sounds, having watched the F1 in Paddy's bar the evening before washed down with a couple of beers and no food.

However, Ted Baker would have been proud off us both in our new Ted B suits. Looking the part we walked the short walk from our hotel to the Office. Computers logged in paperwork filled out we sat around wondering what to do next as the Boss hadn't arrived.

After peppermint tea and a chat the day started with several hours of training and Tracy looking bemused. Stopping only for a short lunch we worked most of the day with Steve learning how to hold a first appointment. At 4.00pm the day was over.........

So off we went to look at another apartment and yet again we walked away from it thinking god we can't live there. So. off we went home to our functional room to change before going for a walk and to grab some food.

We wondered around the local area in a differnet direction from normal ro see what we could find. We came across Volvo, BMW, Mini and Jaguar stores mmmm one day but not sure if I would ever drive in Beijing unless I was in a tank.

After wondering for a couple of hours we decided to get food we entered a place with a sign on the window Beijing Duck, So tonight had to be Chinese night. Going in not knowing if we would understand anyone or know what we was ordering, We had a wonderful mea lwith chopsticks for wait for it 13.60.

Two starters 2 bottles of Water yes I said WATER and 1 whole Beijing Duck sliced and served at our table. We will be going back if we can find it again lol.

Had a hour of looking for appartments on the net since we've been back so hopefully we can book to see somemore tomorrow.

Well its off to sleep we go or should I say I'll try and get some sleep as Tracy is already sleeping. Here's to more training tomorrow night all

We've had another sunny day here, looks like the weather set to change for the BH!! Hope you find a nice apartment, look forward to seeing pics when you find the right place.
Lots of love,
