Back To Beijing!

We were up early again (no rest on this trip!) for a flight back to Beijing. We had to wait 30 minutes at the airport for our bus, so that put us behind the rest of the day. We changed up the schedule a bit and went straight to lunch which was a "hot pot" style. Each person had a little copper pot that was filled with seasoned water, and set over a burner. After the water came to a boil, we dropped meat and veggies into it to cook. The problem with this was that most of the meat was lamb, which we don't care for. We tried several different things, but just didn't like as usual, we were hungry.

We then headed to the Temple of Heaven - we rushed through because we were still behind schedule. We didn't go through fast enough though, as we were late arriving at the Chinese Acrobat Show and couldn't go in. We waited in the heat while the guide bought tickets for the later show. Since we hadn't eaten at lunch, I began to feel lightheaded and decided to return to the hotel room. Emily wanted to stay with her friends, so Randy and I caught a taxi to the hotel. There was a McD's near the hotel, so that's what we had for dinner (I must say, it was quite tasty...but neither of us were able to eat it all. I guess the heat had taken it's toll). Emily watched the show and had dinner with the group, and returned to the hotel about 10:30 p.m.).
