Beijing Central

One day we made our way to central Beijing. We could not came to Beijing and say we had not seen the CBD. It is big, as one would expect with very tall modern buildings. We asked in one if they had an observation deck and they told us just go to the eightieth floor.

We did that and it was a very upmarket bar / coffee lounge with a few businessmen (they wore suits I wore a Thai shirt and camera bag) So we rather conspicuously took some pictures out of the bar windows and beat a hasty retreat.

For lunch we had some great dumplings, walked a bit more and headed for the metro and home. It does not take much to wear Wombats out, especially the blistered feet..

About Willie Wombat

Wombats come from Tasmania which is the island state at the bottom end of Australia. We enjoy traveling and try to do a bit before we get too old to enjoy it anymore. We are currently both (Mr. & Mrs. Wombat) in our seventies so the time must come soon to pull up the armchairs and footstools and settle down to life on our 17 acre property 30 klm from Hobart which is the capital of Tasmania.
