Julie and I flew overnight from London and arrived in Beijing this morning, comfortable flight, but did not sleep much so both feeling whacked ! First impressions of Beijing ….. Hot ! Sweaty ! traffic, crazy driving and the smog that blankets the city. Checked into a great hotel on the other side of the city for three days before we transfer to the “Rally HQ” on Tuesday – the plan is to rest up, adjust to the time zone and do a bit of sight seeing.
Julie says ……. so tired. Dark shadows under eyes have decided to add a rather lovely layering effect – double bags. Super. Considering that my luggage on this rally is limited, seems slightly unfair. Hotel is amazing – anywhere that rips up a bill after a few cocktails gets my vote for a return visit. Definitely ready for a long, restful nights sleep. Here’s hoping.
