Woke up feeling a little delicate to say the least at about lunch time after a dorm room discussion of our fun and games last night we got up and booked our train tickets to Xi'an to see the Terra Cotta warriors for the next evening and decided to get some fresh air so we went for a walk around the shops of Wanfujing.  We wandered around the largest toy shop that we have ever been in and found some fabulous food markets where they had live scorpions on sticks and small SHARKS!!!  Just meandering through the narrow alleyways we came across a stall that amongst other things was selling a rubber horses head mask - I decided instantly that I wanted it.  The man wanted 280Y for it though (about 28 quid), his explanation was that it was 'handmade' - a rubber moulded mask - hmmmmm!

At 4pm we couldn't wait any longer and had a huge meal at our favorite restaurant.  Hot and sour soup, duck, sizzling beef, egg fried rice, it did well and soaked up all the alcohol left in our systems.  It was such a nice change from vegetable thali.  Arriving back at the hostel we had a couple of hours sleep and then did a little blogging, Andrew managed to sell our India Lonely Planet Guide and buy a second hand China one - Great!  Maybe now we could, perhaps a little late, plan our China trip!  Ordered a beer studying the 'Book' and got chatting to Meagan and Kennedy from our dorm room who apparently came looking for 'The English'.  After a while Bosco appeared and after draining the beer keg in the hostel bar we decided to get our groove on and get down to Bar Street again.  We tried to all get in the same cab but the taxi driver ended up screaming at us so we decided to get two.  This time the taxi driver knew exactly where we wanted to go after we made a few gestures of knocking back a beer or two.  

It was a lot quieter than the night before, what with it being a Sunday night, sadly no male pole dancer tonight for Kennedy, shame, but the karaoke bar was open so we comandeered the microphone, Kennedy did a mean rendition of 'Remember the Time' by Michael Jackson, Genious!  At some point we befriended a lone middle aged German called Jurgen who was not at all afraid of having the craic - I can personally say that he was a great partner to duet Y.M.C.A with.  My memory fails me a little but we ended up in the pole dancing bar, albeit with no pole dancers, with a hookah pipe in the middle of the table.  Somehow it got to 6am and light.  This time we managed to all get in the same taxi, Andrew sat in the front and distracted the driver by practising his Chinese on him from the back of the 'bible', asking him things like "are there any messages for me?", and "where is the bathroom?", whilst Meagan lay across the rest of us.  We had to do the 'walk of shame' past the people waiting in reception to go on their day trips, including the other girl who was in our dorm, she looked at us all in disgust.  Got back to the dorm in hysterics, what a bonkers night out, are you all meeting us in Xi'an guys?
