China - Beijing

A journal entry from: London

Hi Guys

Well I have had a good few days in Beijing. The beginning was very wet as you can see from some of the photos but still very enjoyable.

I signed up for a couple of tours while I was out and about that all ended up having a non English speaking guide but who cares - all part of the fun I suppose! Except for the Forbidden City where I spent 5 hours totally lost - The place is hugh! 

The far best highlight was the wall for me - pictures don't do it justice. I went on a 4 hour treak through 35 of its towers and it is truely amazing. Would not do it again though!!

I have enjoyed Beijing but I think 4days will be enough for me. The language is a big problem here - glad I came though.

Now overnight to Hong Kong - Yippee!

Love, Liz xxxx
