English Version 56
After a very slow start, where I succeed eating a yogurt and later eat a couple of toasts I am slowly recovering now at 11 o`clock.
I have had my return flight confirmed on friday. I`m not trying to get home earlier.
Tomorrow I visit the embassy, so the Summer Palace is postponed till the day after. And today I`ll walk to the Temple of Heaven, I think.
The "main-building" is so extraordinary that you simply MUST see it. But I`m disappointed not being able to enter it. The park in which it`s all in is HUGE and if you walk two minutes away from the "tourist-street" you can be completely on your own. There I hear the f-eec-bird again. Now I`ve heard it in all the provinces I`ve visited. I try to get a glimpse of it and get to underneath the tree in which it is sitting, but the leaves are impossible to look through and I end up giving up. I`m still marked by my sickness, but the road back seems shorter because I walk a little this way and a little that way through some hutong-a-like areas, that look extremely poor.
