Safe arrival in Beijing

- We left the most beautiful beaches I've ever seen and arrived the
smoggiest city I'veever seen. But it's good to be here. Phi Phi Island
was ridiculously relaxing, but we pretty much ran out of things to do,
especially when some heavy rain came our way. I read "A Fine Balance"
(it's SO good!), went snorkeling and ate lots of seafood.

- Tonight we ate duck gizzard (or was it goose?), jellyfish, and a
huge pot of mushrooms. Thai food is tasty, but Chinese food is
definitely more interesting and, in my opinion, preferable.

- Great Wall tomorrow, then some sights around town.
