There at last, and suitably impressed!   If i didnt know that they were hosting the Olympics here id think that this had always been one of the most tourist orientated and cleanest places ever.  I feel, however , that theyve simply organised one of the worlds largest 'sweeping it under the rug' approaches to tidying ever.  Still, cracking bunch of locals.  Saw very little yesterday due to being exhausted and not arriving until after 4 in the afternoon, but today was another story.  The Forbidden City.  Very big indeed, but interesting and colourful from start to finish.  Off to a park with a big hill now to try and get a look at the whole city from on high - this place is MASSIVE and geating my bearings is proving quite a challenge!

It was FANTASTIC to speak to you yesterday - makes you realise how wonderful mobile phones are when you can call from the highest point of the Great Wall. xx
