My first day in Beijing was a little crazy, but still cool. First we woke up at 5:45 and did some things like packing and doing our hair, clothes and teeth. We then left at 6 and got to the airport at 6:30 and found food because we were really hungry at the time. Then we found our gate, got on the plane and got organized. There were romotes in your arm rest. You also had a screen in front of you and you could do games, movies and more. I watched a movie called Back to the Future – this movie is from the 80’s. I also did a game, it was 3D golf. I really did not know how to work it, so I quit the game. I have to tell you guys this, there were these windows that had buttons – one was white one was grey. If you preesed the grey one, the window would become darker, and if you pressed the white one it would become lighter. It was good for sleeping.
After we got off the plane, we checked into the hotel and met a friend. She took us to Hutong district one day and a flea market another. The Hutong was cool with lots of shops. We ate a delicious chinese lunch. I really liked the pork. At the flea market I loved the jewelry. I did not like the smoking – it gave me headaches. I got a blue bead, an elephant charm, and a bracelet. We had a pool at the hotel and we did synchronized swimming. Beijing is very dirty and a lot of people smoke – I do not like that. You could not get you tube which I was devestated about. You could not get google, gmail, or safari. I am in the car now going to the Great Wall. See you next time.
Very cool Grace! I especially like the window buttons on the airplane. Be safe!
