I could get used to this: an ice-cream now, a milkshake later and a frozen yoghurt on the afternoon snack. The only thing I can't stand is this terribly hot weather... 8 am in the morning and the thermometer already reaches 27 °C; 11 pm and I barely sense the night! And we are not even in Summer!!! Beijing is a wonderful city, but should be visited between October and April.
Today I visited the amazing Temple of Heaven and the Lama Temple, the most important Buddhist temple outside Tibet. I even got to perform the traditional ceremony of incense burning.
In the afternoon I discovered some nice hutongs (typical Chinese neighbourhoods) to visit that are not even on tourist guides.
I have already tasted a great amount of traditional Chinese dishes (vegetarian) and I am very pleased with Chinese cuisine.
I am starting to feel sad because my holidays are just finishing. I think it was a long time to be away from home, but at the same time, I think it went on an eyeglance!
