Kittens and climbing
As my train from Beijing was in the evening I wanted to make the most of the day.
This for me means some stretching/exercise and a big breakfast. A Chinese breakfast is however very different to what we have in Australia. Over here restaurants and street stalls make hundreds of buns that are steamed rather than baked and filled with meats and vegetables. There are other options but this seems to be the most common.
After eating and getting packed up I met Tina at the subway ready for some adventure!
We made it to our destination which was a very tall rock climbing wall in a park further towards the outskirts of Beijing. Maybe 20 metres tall?
It was exhausting in the heat but I managed the basic wall a couple of times before moving on to a harder one and then doing some bouldering. Then it was time to say goodbye to Tina and head for my station – ready for whatever Shanghai throws my direction!

Looks as if you were the only one brave enough to try ‘the wall’ James! It makes me feel slightly ill just looking at it!

I got vertigo looking at that photo! Well done!
