Back to Beijing

Saturday, 27 Oct 2012 | Views [286]

Oh we both slept badly on the train.  Not sure why as we had less people in the cabin (only two double bunks) and we could close the door to block out some of the smoke. The toilet situation was a little bit better too. However we both slept fitfully ... Read more >

Yinchuan Day 4

Friday, 26 Oct 2012 | Views [232]

A very laid back kind of day today- a few trips here and there but mostly sitting on the couch, drinking coffee, drinking tea, chatting and laughing. It was lovely to see Ben, who got back late last night but it was priceless to see Adah's reaction to ... Read more >

Woke up after a luxurious sleep and a shower in my own private suite (Belinda kindly slept in the extra bed in the living room) and up to the included buffet breakfast on the top floor. Warning this entry will contain over the top food descriptions as ... Read more >

A night and a day in Beijing

The China adventure has started! We had another great flight from Singapore to Beijing with delicious dinner, a glass of wine and a reassuring American pilot. The airport was enormous with a soaring, dome shaped ceiling. It was very quiet that late at ... Read more >
