This was a day of driving. Leaving Taishan at 8.00am and with a total of 500 kms we arrived in Beijing at about 5.00pm
Several highlights…. although as I read this I could say quirky highlights…the roses in the centre of the roadway for several kms as we drove into Beijing were magnificent…all different colours.
Our luncheon spot was in a service area under trees. At least it was shade. One comment was either the locals are very short or the gardener hadn’t trimmed in a while!
We were delayed by about 90 minutes at a police check..just the volume of traffic they couldnt cope with.
Ian and I wandered down to Tiananmen square this evening and booked a duck restaurant for dinner tomorrow. We would have eaten there tonight but as we walked in they said they were closed…it was only 8.00!
Tomorrow the Great Wall!
