China September 2014

Gillian saw a very cheap flight to Beijing so we went there for a week. Beijing is very easy to get around on the metro at 20p per ticket. Everything is on a grand scale and we had very sore feet from so much walking. Luckily a Chinese foot massage was included on the trip to the Great Wall!
