Back in Beijing!

We arrived back in Beijing and the weather is beautiful!

We left the hotel at 4 AM (too early) and headed for the airport. When we arrived in Beijing the weather was beautiful, about 42 degrees. I took an adventure and went solo in a cab to Tian Yi, which is a famous center in the middle of the city. Please don't be fooled, my Mandarin has NOT improved- there was a lot of nodding and gesturing involved!
Tian Yi was nice. Although it was rather far, I walked back to enjoy the day and the sights and sounds. I will sleep good tonight. I have attached a fews pictures I snapped on the way back. My favorite one is of the "petshop on wheels". The vendor really wanted me to buy some turtles!!! I did manage to buy a Coke Zero on the walk back to the hotel and this certain was a BIG win.
Our group has all split up to head their separate ways home. Great friends were made and I especially will miss the crews from GA and MA!! Eddie is off to attend school at Shanghi Ladder-still waiting to hear how his arrival went :-)

These are all the bicycles "parked" along the main boulevard. There are almost as many bicycles and mopeds on the roads as there are cars.
