We flew from Chengdu to Beijing in the midday. For the afternoon and evening, we had free time. Most of us went to a big shopping area. It was cool because this is a place that real Chinese go, not just tourists. I bought a few Chinese books. We didn’t have a group dinner, but I had an entire meal for about US$1.00. We got to take the public bus and subway.
There seem to be a lot of white people in Beijing. It is weird seeing the “foreign devils.” We met some Canadians in our hotel.
This is our last night in China. We are back in Beijing, in the Rainbow Hotel, the same hotel at which we first stayed..
