The Summer Palace was quite impressive, moreso than The Forbidden City. A lot of “Holy crap!” moments. Tomorrow we’re off to the Great Wall, and then Wednesday morning flying to Shanghai.
It’s very cheap to fly there, as a student I know there has booked us air tickets at 70% discount. Now, we’re going to go find a place to sit and have coffee and a pastry, before reading up on the Wall a little more, getting some help from our “hotel” staff in how to get to the right buses. We’re going to try to take in some Beijing Opera tomorrow night, and we found the place we were looking for tonight just around the time performances would be ending, so… at least we know where to go tomorrow. Maybe a bookstore, too. Maybe.
Right, I’m outta here.
