First Day in Beijing
What a day, Beijing is amazing. The overwhelmed feeling that I'm experiencing might be from getting only five hours of sleep since we left Minneapolis but its more likely from to everything that I saw today. The migrant workers outside the window of the hotel, Tianammen Square, The Forbidden City, the rickshaw tour through traditional neighborhoods, the Tea House, an insane Chinese Acrobat show or possibly the Peking duck. I don't even know at this point. What I do know is that I'm full, and I've been full since breakfast. It is entirely possible that I ate more food today than I have ever eaten in my life. Everything was delicious, and there was more than enough to go around. Honestly, I'm speechless. I cannot believe what I did today. Even if I spent a few years in this city I still wouldn't be able to comprehend what goes on here. I need to sleep. I also bought a Rolex for five dollars.
