Well Dad, we have arrived in Beijing.
First impressions, COLD! – stepping off the aeroplane into 1°c was a major shock to the system.
The flight was fine, they tried to feed me mushrooms again, and neither of us got any sleep so we are exhausted, but other than that; no complaints.
We found our tour guide Kevin, and driver Yuan who brought us into the centre. Our hotel is around the corner from the Forbidden City. That is our first stop tomorrow according to Kevin.
We are going to head out now down the road in the search for something to eat, then an early night as Kevin is picking us up at 8:30am!
We seem to have radio silence too. China’s Internet is heavily restricted. Anything Google or Facebook related does not seem to be working. We are not picking up emails either. The only messages that seem to be getting through are WhatsApp and fortunately this blog!
Until tomorrow! X
