Beijing 2013!


Beijing 2013! Beijing, China

Beijing, China- May 2, 2013


Being in Beijing for my birthday was something I could have never imagined! It was such a blessing and great way to bring in 24! 🙂 I dunno how my 25th birthday will be able to top this one. Hahah.. I always need a vacation from my vacation because I love to see and do everything. We definitely didnt do everything but my feet were definitely killing me each night! Beijing is such a big city, I didnt have to use as much mandarin as I need up here in Harbin. So it was a great vacay from the language struggle. (Easy enough if my family ever wanted to visit China. ?.because of the recent Olympics). The city is so easy to navigate through, with buses and a highly efficient train station. I took a soft sleeper train on Friday, April 26thand arrived in Beijing Saturday Morning. I have never been on a sleeper train! Beds and every thing.. I felt like I was going to Hogwarts. My roomates were nice… I was sleeping on the top bunk next to a youngish woman who later told me she worked at the tax bureau and gave me her numberin case I needed help. 🙂 below us was an older couple and they helped me to put my bags away. We arrived in Beijing and I was hyped just because it was about 75 degrees! It was beautiful the entire weekend I was there! 🙂 it was a blessing being able to see the great wall of China. the pictures will never be able to do it justice of the magnificence and beauty that it beholds. Through the steeps hills and steps and through the mountains, it took so much work to get that wall build, the blood and sweat. Coming was a different story of comfort. I not in the sleeper section this go round, i was in the seater which means riding like on the airplan
