Hey my gorgeous freinds!

Well I made it...i'm in Beijing and it's Day 3! Been sooo busy seeing so many gorgeous temples...Lama Temple, Temple of Heaven Park, Summer Palace (absolutely gorgeous...google it!!!). Met my group y'day...10 of us in total....3 sets of couples but everyone's so loevely...having a right laugh! Went for a Beijing Duck dinner altogether last night then went Summer Palace together today and have just watched an absouleely WICKED Kungfu show....the best (dramatic!) performance I've seen in my life!!! Gonna all grab some dinner then go off to a night market to grab up some bargains....sooooo cheap here it's unreal...beer for 20p...I;m gonn abe such a beer-belly fatty...or maybe not as there's f-all for me to eat...guess that'll cancel it out yeah!?!!? Went Forbidden City and Tiananmne Sq y'day....couldn;t go to the Mao Mausoleum and see his old dead body...ahh well maybe next time...watevs (as El would say!!!). Gonna see and Acrobatics show tomo night....lets see if it beats the Kungfu! Them on Saturday off to trek th Great Wall of China!!! Wow!!! Having a blast (once I got over the initial foirst day loneliness and hard reality that I won;t see a lot of you for a long LONG time!)...but my group's great which make's all the difference!!!

Oh and it seems I'm one of the many tourist attractions....I'm gonna appear in many-a-Chinese-tourists family snaps as they seem sooooo intrigued at this Western lady (I use the term lady loosely as you all know!!!)

Signing off for now! Will fill you in on the Great Wall and Xi'an (Terracotta Army) in the coming week!

Miss you and love you!!!

I imagine there is not much you can eat there Kelsey! Won't you be tempted by crispy fried scorpion or cow's bronchial tubes (apparantely like macaroni cheese)?!Yuck.
Glad you are ok and having fun. Enjoy every minute girl! xxx
