It was good stepping of the plane in Beijing as the flight marked my 9th in the last three weeks and 11th of the year. Even though flying is a necessary evil traveling from Iceland its good to know I won't have to deal with any airports until the end of my trip, when I fly home from Russia.
The stop in China was a short one though with only two full days exploring. There were clearly two big highlights, the first being the Forbidden City and the second The Great Wall.
Next up is a long train trip over to Mongolia.
