resting after eating food from 7-11 again
this will be our first night in beijing.. and since we arrived late from our flight we didnt have much time to explore the place yet. we arrived at the new beijing airport which i thought looked pretty cool.. exchanged some money cause we were running out of it. hahah then headed for the high speed train the connects teh airport to beijing city. then we took the metro to our hostel which was a few minutes walk away through these narrow streets and next to hutons.. the entrance to the new dragon hostel looked like a chinese temple design and we got the room by the bar on the basement floor. so it gets pretty noisy in the morning (which jegs will tell me since i sleep through the noise) it was dark already when we left the hostel and we decided to ride the new metro constructed for the beijing olympics and go to the olympic park! ive always wanted to see the birds nest stadium since i studied it for my project stadium in grad school. i wasnt dissapointed.. it looked great at night time and i finally found out how the construction was in person. there was also the swimming center and tower.. lots of people were there skating and boarding and flying kites. it was a great modern park where locals and tourist hang out. we stayed and hanged out there for a bit then i think we grabbed something to eat.. im not sure. headed back to the hostel to get some must needed rest.
