Goodbyes from Beijing

Our whirlwind few days in the Chinese capital included a toasty tour of the Forbidden City and an equally roasty hike up to the Great Wall. Fueled by ice cream, fresh watermelon and strong wills, the group has braved the Beijing heat with humor and grace. After expressing gratitude to each other and those who have helped along the way, we are off to bed on our final night together in China.
