Back from Beijing


So I have just got back from Beijing and it was really good. They seemed to clear up the pollution whilst I was there, going from a nasty cloudy mess to bright blue skies – helped by some rain on the last day.

I got some time to experience some more of Beijing at night, eating Scorpions, Centipedes and Snake (don’t try Centipede – it doesn’t taste so good and is twice the price of the other snacks) and I totally recommend trying Scorpion. Really. Hotpot was of course on the menu and as always was excellent.



The hotel was good, though I couldn’t find the gym and asking the people that worked there resulted in directions to some building down the street somewhere. Oh well hopefully will get better directions in Amsterdam where I will go next week.
