Goodbye BeijingApril 7, 2018 in China ⋅ ⛅ 6 °C
Had a lovely sleep and breakfast complete with rollkuchen and watermelon. Walked a bit in the gardens surrounding the hotel. They were part of a large exhibition some years ago and now are a place for the people to get away from the concrete jungle that is Beijing. In few weeks the gardens will be full if colour. Now just the flowering plums and magnolia trees provide a welcome break from the brown grass and tree trunks.
We are grateful to have been here two weeks ago to clim the Great Wall. We saw a video of people climbing it yesterday. Extremely treacherous because of a heavy snowfall.
Now ready to board the bus for the airport. No wifi again until we reach YVR. Hoping to sleep well on the plane tonight.Read more
