Steve and Inge's Tour to China 2007 travel blog

Here's our room on the right.


Our first sight.


climbing higher.

What a workout.


Could it be any steeper?!


The Red Guard...


Coming down was worse than going up.


Getting ready for the olympics!

Hi Everyone!

We made it finally! After a long flight we arrived in Beijing at 4am local time. We went straight to out Hotel at the Great Wall. Our hotel was an architects contest. It is simply a wonderful place to unwind and get over our Jet Lag.(The Commune at the Great Wall). We spent the morning at the wall. It's now 3PM and we're dead. The Great Wall was great Ha Ha!! But enough of Steve's humour. It was awesome and we actually climed to a very high point about 1 mile in total hiking! We are dead now and our legs and calves are feeling it! We are off to Beijing in the morning to do all the City sights. Will update later. The Chinese people are amazing, so friendly and they all want to know if we are impressed with China so far! Well we are, you can't belive the highways, infrastructure and all the construction going on, all this in the last 20 years!!!!!

We are off to sleep now, have to deal with Jet Lag!

Steve and Inge
