The Final City

I arrived in Beijing (from Xian) this morning.  A quick word on Xian, I loved it.  I think I had lower expectations because everyone said it wasn't their favorite place.  I was there 3 days and I could have stayed longer.  The sights are nice, but there is so much history there.   Also I had some of the best food (best food was still in Panyu) of my trip.  I mostly ate street food in the Muslim district.  Fabulous.

I am looking forward to going home but I am also sad to go.  I am travelled out but there is so much I still haven't seen.  The week in Beijing will maybe be more relaxing. Maybe.  Knowing me, not as much as it could be.  I am here to visit my Swedish friends too so I wont be running around the city everyday.  

I may be posting pictures soon.  The little journal I brought came from my Spain trip.  I have maybe 20 pages from that trip.  I have almost finished it now from this trip.  Since I can't always talk to people I take it out on my journal.  I will be giving a partial recounting of each area soon as well.
