China

Beijing

In preparation for the Olympics

semi-overcast 27 °C

Well I arrived in Beijing and it’s one big building site for the upcoming Olympics.
Traffic is still booming and even more so than two years ago.
The Chinesw people really have discovered fast food because they are getting fat fast.
Luckily the real chinese food is still around and I enjoyed it very much. Tonight I’m going to eat Hot Pot or chinese fondue. Also something which is very good. If you like good food consider coming over.
Today we went to the great wall and the summerpalace. This contains the Marble boat built by the last empress of China. Yes the mother of the poor lonely last emperor of China.
Well tommorrow the real adventure starts when we fly to Mongolia. Two full weeks bumping in fomer Sovjet Kamaz trucks.
I’m sure I/m going to enjoy it.
Bye for now
