BEIJING CITY, Beijing Province:
Happy National Day!!!
Today the Shenyang lot were going to see the Lama Temple, but because I've already seen that I decided to do something different. I had a lazy morning having a look around the area near the hostel, and then in the afternoon I went to the Olympic Green.
I don't whether it's just for National Day, but when I finally got to the subway station to transfer onto the Olympic Line, you needed a special ticket to continue!
I was a bit gutted, coz it had taken quite a while to travel across to this part of Beijing, but then one of the guards gave me his spare ticket!
The Olympic Green is enormous - and there were so many people! Got really tired wandering around the whole area, so by the dinner-time I was pretty hungry - just as well because....
For dinner we had CURRY!!! I have been craving curry pretty much since I got here, so it was amazing! It was one of the restuarants by our hostel, and there was about 10 of us - Angela had travelled down from Beijing, so it was cool to see her again, as well as catching up with more of the others.
After curry we got ready to go out, yet again!
