Second Installment of China Trip: Day Two (Wed. 5/25/2011)

Hong Kong & Beijing
香港 & 北京
By the way, you pronounce Hong Kong -  Xiang Gang in Mandarin Chinese. (Shee-ong Gong)

Okay, Day two! First things first we had to check into the airport for our flight to Beijing and pick up my China visa! Then we spent the rest of the afternoon scouring bookstores (old and new) to find books we couldn't easily get in Taiwan. None of them I could read I might add. (But all in good time! ;) )

Arriving in Beijing
 After we got to Beijing, our tour send a driver to take us to the hotel. We got in later than the rest of the group. It was a long ride to the hotel, which seemed like it was in the middle of nowhere. Turns out that Beijing is huge and really spread out so everywhere is the middle of nowhere and it takes forever to get places. BUT: a more in-depth review of what Beijing is like will come in the next episode... Day 3!

(sorry I know it's long overdue to talk about China, but it's taking forever to get the pictures edited)

More to come soon! Lots of pictures in the next one!
