    Youtha Suites Apartment - Erster Morgen

    August 23 in China ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    Erste Nacht in der Neuen Wohnung verbracht. Tagsüber sieht der Ausblick aus der Wohnung genauso Hammer aus wie Nachts. Erst recht bei so schönen Wetter. So richtig kann ich das noch nicht realisieren...
    Aber ohne meine Family ist es nur halb so schön.
    Heute geht's schon los mit der House Hunting Tour. Erste Vorauswahl von Stadtteilen und Wohnungen oder Häusern für unser Familienzuhause treffen.

    The Great Wall of China

    August 12, 2019 in China ⋅ ☁️ 27 °C

    Today bright and early we are off to see the Great Wall of China. The weather is quite cool. 2 hours by car.
    We arrived at about 1030 and decided unanimously to go up by cable car and not walking.. So we queued up for an hour. Three wall had some very steep steps, a lot of people going any which way, lots of long silver worms and some incredible scenery. We decided to go down by toboggan which was like a Bob sled and lots of fun. It was actually quite funny (errrr hem), when we came down, one guy in our group, Sergio, who was several people behind us came down Saint: had anyone lost a phone? He'd found this phone on the bobsled metal way being bounced here and there by the people tobogganing down at high speed so he slowed down and picked it up... And it was Robbie's phone!! I thought it was pretty funny.. 🤣😂😱😱🤕
    We went for a nice local lunch then took another 2 hour trip to return to Beijing. We stopped at the Olympic village, quite impressive to see, the architectural design of these constructions was quite different. After this we decided to go to the Hutongs, walk around and have dinner the. The Hutongs are the ancient 14th century warren of alleyways that coast the lake. Most of these small house are now shops but everything is really colourful and fun to see. We had a really amazing dinner in a great restaurant built into a Hutong old house. Peking duck is very good but..not my thing, probably it's an acquired taste..
    Our suitcases are ready, we leave tomorrow for the summer palace then X'ian.
