HUAIROU, Beijing Province:
Got the bus into Dongzhimen this morning to meet my family and bring them back to Huairou safely! They brought a massive suitcase full of English goodies, which I was able to properly look through once we'd got back to Huairou! Natalie bought me a load of clothes from Primark and they're brilliant! Cannot wait to try them all out properly.
Got the family all settled in at their hotel, and then took them for a walk in the Women's Park. The lake had frozen over, so we walked across it a bit. Was amazing! The ice was so thick.
We went to the Hot Pot place for dinner - the restaurant was so busy! We were taken to a private room because we needed two hot pots, but it was a really fun evening! So excited about Christmas Day!
After dinner we all came back to our apartment, and played some card games.
