Hey guys........well we have only been here a few days but we have already done so much not got time to say it all. we got here fine but spent a whole day sleeping met the group that night had an amazing mix of chinese food. We went to the great wall the next day, it was quite misty and the leaves are just changing so a mixture of golds and browns and yellows so made it relly magical. It was hard work but got to the highest point. We cant believe we have finally done it relly was memorable especially the sub way at the bottom and I dont mean an underground I mean the food but we managed to resist. Been trying not to eat too much so living off noodles where we can.
Bejing isnt as we expected....not many bikes and really developed loads of modern skyscrapers and shops.
Today we went to tieneman square sorry about the spelling and the forbiden temple and temple of heaven and the bird nest. We wnet to the top of the bird nest and watched the light show really amazing even though I didnt see the olypics.
We arr both having a great tome and the group are great having such a laugh went to a bar last night that had a pole dancer however the first one was a man you should have seen lees face we also met michael jackson woop woop.
