We have arrived in Beijing! The temperature outside is a very cold -8c and there is a large supply of snow all around! The flight over here was a good result as when we boarded at the gate we were told that we had been given an upgrade to club world. With lots of extra leg room, a tv each, personal games and a satalite phone (which was very expensive) what more could you ask of a 10 hour flight?!? Anyway enough about the flight.
We landed at 8am local time which has meant that we have now been up for over 24 hours and its still only 4pm here. We have already made an impression on the locals after being kicked out of the taxi on the way to our hostel, so we have been walking aimlessly around in the snow trying to find our hostel. Which is never good when you have a mega heavy rucksack on your back!
Hostel is very nice, basic, but nice. It is very clean the staff seem to be quite friendly. My mum would love this place as there is always a local in sight somewhere sweeping, or moping the floor. Already spotted our first vac packed chicken feet, but we are sticking away from them for now. Lee is still however, very excited about finding a scorpian kebab vendor.
Not had time to take any photos yet but we will add pictures soon.
Love to everyone
Kirst & Lee
