Well, we made it to Beijing, along with all our luggage. Connecting to Twitter and Facebook is a challenge here due to certain Internet restrictions, so those updates will come later.
42 degrees with the humidex today – we guzzled water like there was no tomorrow, and our need of the facilities was not affected. It just came out through our pores. That much is just like Niger. The part that wasn’t like Niger is that we noticed, and our clothes were drenched as a result, and I had to keep wiping sweat off the camera.
Agenda for today was:
- Tienanmen Square
- Forbidden City
- Peking Duck Lunch
- Visit to the Toy Market
- Acrobat Show
Lots of fun and fluids had by all, but by suppertime, we were ready to crash, which is what I am going to do now.
