I’m still working out what I’ll do on the 16th. I’m told I really need to see the Great Wall while I’m there, so maybe that will land there. I also have to set aside some time to buy a few things for my family.
Bring me home a baby panda to play with!
you have to see the forbidden city
Hope you have more free time then I did. I remember China as looking exactly like: a Taxi, a hotel room and a conference room. And a really long escalator….
I have at least one complete day of unscheduled time in each city. 🙂
So exciting! I remember having one too many jianbing (savory crepes) in Beijing 🙂
If you’re a fan of street food, I’d recommend it.
(And, of course, the Great Wall!)
