Does not get much better than this!
This is our view from our office. It's garbage. No pun intended.

Yesterday, I climbed the Great Wall at Badaling. It took about 3 hours to go from North Tower 10 (where I entered) to a Fortress where you could descend. The Great Wall is so enormous you loose words when you see it. If you ever go to Asia or China, make sure you visit this place and walk it (don't use the cable carts).
Hope you have a good weekend. Peace out.
Last weekend we went to Beijing Zoo, accompanied by Andrew and his lovely wife from Poland. We got to see the highly awesome Panda Bears. They were amusing to watch. One of the Pandas woke up to do some public stretching before he took another nap. Very nice.
If you ever go to Beijing and want to visit the Zoo, beware: Most of the animals lives in horrible conditions. You need some strong nerves to do a full tour of the Zoo. The Panda Bears were the only ones with good conditions. They have descent space and a steady supply of bamboo. They looked pretty happy.
Inside Beijing Zoo you can also visit the brand new Aquarium! I can recommend a trip here. The fishes and marine mammals have clean water tanks and everything is in mint condition.
