After out time in Mongolia we boarded the train again for another 36 hour train journey this time to Beijing. Seemed like a walk in the park this time, except the boarder crossings. After 2 hours at the Mongolian border and then 4 hours at the chinese border we were finally on our way. On our first evening we sampled the local food and of course went for Peking Duck followed by some beers and walk around.
On the second day we headed off on a 2 hour bus journey to the great wall followed by a stroll around Tianamen square. its currently a national holiday in China and the streets are filled with people. Hopefully over the next few days things will calm down abit.
Today, our third day here we've had a lazy day, we moved from our first hotel to the Hilton- treat time already already and then spent the afternoon doing some washing followed by a walk for dinner. Off to the Olympic stadium tomorrow.
Love Rob & Cait
