Today we took a 3 hour plane flight to Beijing from Hong Kong. When we arrived we entered a huge airport terminal which we heard was now the biggest terminal in the world. Our guide, Jonathon, met us and drove us to our hotel. He told us we were free tonight, so we just walked around the area. Everyone here is very proud that they are hosting the Olympics. Not as many people speak English here, but they are all friendly & helpful in spite of the language barrier. Still very crowded with people, and lots more bikes on the streets. After our walk we went to a dumpling restaurant and the dumplings were really, really good. Now I'm sleepy, so it's off to take a shower & go to bed. We'll be touring all day tomorrow.
