What a wonderful city!

sunny 34 °C

I've been here for no longer than 30 hours and I keep amazed by how it works: motocicles and cars are noiseless, the subway works like a Swiss watch, it's a very intelligent and person-friendly city, and almost everyone scratches a bit of English.
The only thing worse is the hot weather at the moment: 34 °C and rising, towards the end of the week, which makes it tough for walking around and sightseeing, even tough there are lots of parks and green areas. I am stopping every 60 minutes to buy an icecream or a frozen yoghurt - there's no other way!
I started the day with a tour from Tiananmen Square to the Forbidden City, strolled around Beihai Park and then went for a magnificient show of Acrobatics in Chaoyang Theatre.
I am really loving Beijing!
