When you see how huge the summer palace and the forbidden city is, which was owned by only one emperor, you see why there was revolutions.
Also in the Summer Palace.
Someone has stolen Buddha's head. That must surly lead to bad karma.
We slept in the top-bunk. Which was quite high up.
Little room...
Also some parts of the summer palace.
Love in China.
Chinese shoes in China.

Yesterday we went to the Summer Palace and David's university in Beijing to find a nice room for him for july. Still, the most impressive part of he's school for me was definitly the large cantine. For I while I though my dream of eating in a school cantine with the tray and everything would come true. But that was untill I realized that you needed a student card to be fed.

The summer palace was beautiful, but crammed with what seemed to be half of the chinese population. But in reality I guess it was not more than 0.000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001% of it. Yes, I'm definitly realizing how many chinese there actually is. When you see the masses moving around from one place to another you are actually amazed how smooth it all goes. Still, yesterday we used 3 hours to travel 15km by bus. Puh.

Last night we took the train to Xi'an, where we are now. The train was really a positive suprise because the standard was very good. Except the toilet (of course), in which I almost vommited because of the SMELL, which is only ehanced by the fact that you almost have to sit on the ground cause' the toilets are what norwegians would refer to as "just a hole in the ground".
