Today the Forbidden City was open! What a big building definetly one of the highlights of Beijing. After the forbidden city is the Jingshan Park with a nice view at the Forbidden City and the rest of Beijing. At Jingshan park old people are exercising and have a good time with eachother. After a hotpot fastfood lunch with Megan I catched the train at 16.30 to Xi’an. 12 hours resting 🙂 only thing is that my train arrived 6.30 in the morning. At the train station I took a motorbike taxi to my first 5 dollar hostel. Warriors international Hostel.
After my french friends were gone I found a dutch guy and a American girl to hangout. Finaly we end up in the mc Donalds at 2.30 it was worth it 🙂 Today I went to the forbidden city, but it was closed! Try it tomorrow again. After the failure I went to the night market to eat “something” strange. I tryed a normal Chinese kebab and the scorpion. It was nice, like if you eating a crunchy chickenskin. In the evening I ate in the hostel together with two girls a normal big burger with fries.

This morning I had to wake up early again, the kind French friends asked me to join them to the Summer Palace, sure! It was amazing to see. It’s created around 1370 or something. But that big! Unfurtunatly we couldn’t rent a boat becouse of the hard wind but the environment was amazing. After the Summer Palace we went to the big Tiananmen square next to the Forbidden City. This evening I booked my train ticket to Xi’an for Tuesday. In the evening the hostel was real good with some nice other travelers from Canada, The Netherlands and Germany. Tomorrow I’ll visit the Forbidden city and hopefully I’ve some time left to visit WebPower Beijing!
