Peking day 3

Written on: Tuesday May 22nd, 2007

A journal entry from: Peking to Paris Rally

Hello Everyone and especially Toast5

CAR 12 is Andrew, I saw Warner's site and figured I might be able to do this too.

Day 3 in Beijing - Rained all day, still raining, will rain again tomorrow.  Struggled to find things to do indoors, most attractions are not so good in the wet in this city.  Went shpping, bought stuff for my daughter, had some fun buyng a Chinese dinner jacket for myself.  Managed to bargain better than my tour guide could.  Am also teaching him a bit about American Football (as if I knew much) it is part of his education somehow - he is taking English for sports - Olympics coming.

Got wet, dried off, got wet again.  Have had a practice at washing out clothes the old fashioned way - bar of laundry soap and 2 hands.  No picture taking today.

Getting the hang of subways, not too hard, but distances are further than London.

That is all for today.
