Time to fly home
Thursday 5 November 2009 - Beijing, China

I am very glad that I came to China but I am even happier to leave this country it is not my kind of country. This morning I was trying to eat my 21th omelet in a row, at least it felt like that, when to my surprise I read some news in a Chinese magazine about Sweden it was a very fascinating

The Great Wall?
Wednesday 4 November 2009 - Beijing, China

Oops I thought I had a lot of time, but today there were no breakfast personnel until 08:10 and I was supposed to walk out to the “Gu lou dong da jie” rd and catch the bus at 08:30 for today’s sightseeing. I just managed to catch the bus, then we drove to the Ming Tomb, I also learned that

Tuesday 3 November 2009 - Beijing, China

I had a barely decent breakfast, then I read the Swedish news through my internet connection and to my surprise the told about the Chinese weather control centre that had created the snowfall in Beijing, it came two months earlier than it normally does. I wonder what kind of weather they will

Monday 2 November 2009 - Beijing, China

I had a late breakfast before we went out in the streets, it seemed that we got straight into the fashion shops, it was a nice temperature, humid and cloudy of course, there was nothing special to see. Then I spent a few kilometers in the gym before I started to pack for the airport. It was time

Sightseeing 4
Sunday 1 November 2009 - Chengdu, Sichuan, China

The breakfast buffet was great and the coffee was almost as good as Swedish coffee, wonderful! It was time to visit the Chengdu Panda Breeding Centre, it took a while to get there Chengdu seems to be a big city. Once there we had the opportunity to walk around and view the different Pandas and take

Saturday 31 October 2009 - Chengdu, Sichuan, China

I got up quite early about 6:30 it was time for a quick breakfast and then a four wheel drive to Lhasa airport, it was a chilly morning and the airport looked like it was still under construction. We got white prayer scarfs from our guide and the drivers as a departure gift. Then it was time to

Potala Palace
Friday 30 October 2009 - Lhasa, Tibet, China

We went to the Potala Palace and had the opportunity to walk up and around the building then we got to the upper parts which had many different temples, actually it wasn’t that special to bump into hundreds of Tibetan and Chinese people that offered money and yak butter to the Buddha statues. I

Thursday 29 October 2009 - Lhasa, Tibet, China

I had a good breakfast and then we went out on a drive to see the “Drepung Monastery” it wasn’t that great, I think I have filled my quota of monasteries for now, then we visited the newly built railway station I don’t know why really? After that it was time for a nice Tournedos and a Lhasa

Wednesday 28 October 2009 - Lhasa, Tibet, China

At this time I think I had adjusted very well to the altitude the only thing that bothered me was that the air was extremely dry. So I woke up many times during the night just to drink water. In the morning we had a nice and relaxing breakfast without any stressful plans; it was really great to

Another four wheel drive
Tuesday 27 October 2009 - Lhasa, Tibet, China

I took a nice warm shower before it was time to try the big breakfast buffet, but big doesn’t necessarily mean good and I wasn’t that hungry. The funny thing was that we had almost one waitress per person standing around us, always ready to fill up our cup of tea or coffee. Today it was time to
