So when D-Mug and I had the whole day to explore Beijing (08-21) of course, of course, the skies open up and it rains all day. But when we’re facing a day full of travel? Oh, it’s just sunny as can be! (Though this was probably a good thing for purposes of delays and flight cancellations and the like.)
Still, hard to believe that this is Beijing. It was such a gorgeous day! And I spent it taking two flights, two buses, a strange car trip between the China-Hong Kong border, and–aside from a bout of travel sickness–we ended up in Tokyo on time and a-okay.
PS: The Beijing Airport is SUPER BIG and has really long walks and the bus between terminals is actually like a 20 minute ride. Craaaazy.
