Beijing - Day 1

I made it to Beijing! And it turns out that the great firewall of China aint that great. Censorship is hard and that's a good thing. Anyway, after a long train ride through the Gobi desert I finally arrived in Beijing. I will stay here for 5 days before I continue on to Shanghai. I was really tired after the 30 hour train ride so I took a short day just walking through downtown and having a meal at a local Chinese restaurant. It felt good to finally eat some tasty food. Fried beef with vegetables and chili, awesome. Tomorrow I will be heading a bit further downtown to maybe check out the forbidden city. I have noticed now that Beijing truly is a massive city and 5 days will not be enough.
