Day 178

Bailing Hay? Yes. That's right. The first full day that we were in Kerry Enda's Uncle asked for some help. I'll have to say though, I'm quite proud that the load of hay I stacked didn't fall over.
It wanted to though. :)

Day 177

Second home sweet home! :) When we were about to land Enda pointed out the airport. Usually I don't have any trouble identifying what an airport looks like, but Kerry was an exception.

Day 176 June 25, 2010

A sunny day in London.

Picture: Tower Bridge

Day 175

On the plane heading over London. I love window seats...

Day 174

One of the great things about traveling is that your geography knowledge expands so rapidly. I can now point out where Doha, Qatar is on a map. Not that I need to go there again, but at least I know where it is :)

This picture is on the bus going from our airplane to the airport, which I have to say is one of the least helpful airports I have been to. We only had Yuan to spend, but of course they only accepted Euro, Pound, and Dollar. I thought I would exchange some Yuan but no, they don't have any place to exchange money. Later though, there happened to be a Chinese man who was heading back home, and said he would exchange Dollar for Yuan with us. Nice. We don't have to starve anymore!

Day 173

Airport Day in Beijing...Yay! Qatar Airways was amazing!!! It was my first experience with a 5 star airline, and boy was it good! :)

Day 172

Of course we had to try the infamous Beijing Peking Roast Duck. They sliced it in front of us and then took the duck away. Seeing that it was rather expensive though, we asked for the duck back (taking the advice of some fellow travelers) and found that there was a ton of meat left on the duck, so we dove in and got our moneys worth. :)

Day 171

Houhai/Sanlitun area in Beijing. It's filled with bars, music, and shops.

Day 170

On our way back to Miyun. Gotta love Ping Pong...

Day 169

A great man on the Great Wall. :) We only ran into 2 other parties on the Wall. It was so peaceful and beautiful.

Day 168

Heading to the Great Wall...nice. After much confusion, we took bus 980 (15 yuan) from Beijing to Miyun and got off in the rain. We waited for our next bus to Gou-be-kou, but while we were waiting under some shelter from the rain, it whizzed by and didn't look back. Finally we found a cheap shared taxi that took us for a fraction of the normal price. We arrived in Gou-be-kou and headed straight for a warm restaurant. When our bellies were full and warm, we headed out to a hostel in the nearby village.
