Continued from Part 5.
The second half of our trip is in China. SWMBO took a flight a few days ahead of us so that she can meet and spend some time with her friend while I could visit my relatives and friends in Japan.
Thanks to her parents, my mom and I stayed at her house in outskirt of Beijing.
Lucky for us, our stay was right on the week somehow the air pollution was not too terrible, and weather was good (we had a couple cloudy days, but no rain or anything..)
After dropping the luggage at SWMBO’s parent’s house, we head out for a dinner.
Day 2: Barbarlin Chao-chao (at least that what sounded like to me… Suppose to be the Great Wall of Ba-da-ling)
It’s just one part of the great wall. it’s about an hour or so away from beijing.
After the quick lunch, we took black cab (un-registered taxi) down to the Ming Dinasty’s 13 tombs. The 45 min taxi ride was one of the craziest experience in my life. The driver had little regard to any traffic law, driving wrong side of the road, run through the red light, flying down the street twice the speed limit. However, only with one near miss (almost a head on collision with on coming vehicle), we arrived the tombs just before they closed.
Then we took bus back to the Beijing.
