Geo: 31.23, 121.47Our last day before we head home. Just walked around downtown on a pedestrian friendly street. Lots of shopping. Had to stop for a cold drink and sit in a sunny spot. Nice way to end the trip. Today we enjoyed the best weather and clearest skies. We bring good weather when we travel. It was raining before we got to Shanghai.... read more

Geo: 31.23, 121.47Off the ship and staying in Shanghai for a few days. Chinese immigration was as expected, slow. 8 agents to process a ship with 2100 people. Standing in lines is no fun. Almost saw a couple of fights in the line to get off the ship to wait in another line. Wasn't pretty. Finally cleared immigration. Our excursion with a city tour and hotel drop off left two hours late. Messed up the schedule badly but we still did it all. Tour started with lunch in a very old hotel that was famous for some signing of something. Hard to understand the guide sometimes. Our first stop was in a museum. Very interesting items from very old times. Some items were 5000+ years old. Next was a garden. To get there we walked through ... read more

Geo: 39.9165, 116.391In our final day in Beijing we had two good stops. The first stop was the Forbidden City. Considered one of the man-made wonders of the world (along with the Great Wall), it's considered the largest palatial palace in the world. It is huge. Building after building cover 720,000 square meters. The last stop was Tian'anmen square. The site of the student protests in the 80's. Remember the picture of the tank and the student daring it run him over? That was here. It's the world's largest city square in the world. The Chinese like to make everything on a grand scale. Our weather was very good except for the smog. Again a very bad day for people with breathing problems as you can see in many of the pictures at the square. Returned ... read more

Geo: 39.9165, 116.391Yesterday was an overcast and at times misty/drizzling day. Wasn't bad for what we were doing. Today, it would have been a real shame to have that weather. Well as usual for us, it was a beautiful sunny day. We have been so blessed for over 25 years of almost perfect weather when we travel and plan something. It happened again! Since I keep saying it, it continues to happen so I am just doing what I have said years. We bring good weather when traveling. I was a clear day to walk the Great Wall. The section we walked is a times very steep. It was almost like climbing a ladder! We did climbed the the second fortress. That was enough for us. Great pictures and memories. Guess that's another check mark on ... read more
