And so it begins... Had a good flight to Beijing via Singapore and got to Jade international youth hostel about 12.30am today. Had a good sleep and set out to explore some of Beijing today...
Underestimated the cold and didn't quite rug up enough bug now know for next time. Spengler the day wandering through Zhongshan park, Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden city and then some of Beijing's streets and hutongs (laneways).
No funny stories to report as yet but am sure they will come. Was a tad lonely today and wished there was someone to wander with, but have now met someone at the hostel and more to come later tonight so will have some friends to play with now!
Will check in again soon...
