After a mad few days in hectic ultra-modern Shanghai, I took the night train to Beijing.
Life is quieter here, and it's a lot more like the Beijing that I remember, although the whole city is getting ready for the Olympics.

After the obligatory wander around the Forbidden City, Jinshang temples, Beihai park, a bicycle-taxi tour of the old alleys, and of course the Great Wall, I'm now enjoying some peace and quiet.

Tonight, Peking Duck, and another visit to the trendy bars around back of Beihai lake.

    peace and quiet!
