One More – Beijing Morning

It’s 6:30 am here, we woke up early since in Atlanta, it’s Wednesday afternoon and not Thursday morning. We’ll be here at the Red Lantern Hostel for our entire stay in Beijing – so it’ll be our base of operations. I like it, it’s down a dark alleyway and off of the main road and that’s always fun.

Plus, here’s our courtyard:

Also, we have running hot water, a private room, private bath, it’s just awesome. And WiFi – I’ll need it as this first week is my hardest one for telecommuting with all my projects due.

Oh man. I cannot wait for all the food today – and the sights. Today it’s most of the obvious tourist attractions and then who knows at night.

Have a great day everyone.

    This almost works – the shadows are nice, the editing is blah and the bit of sidewalk is distracting.

    Wow, this place looks great. My kind of accommodation, that’s for sure.
