Beijing, China

Mr. David Barrionuevo who is a member of warm shower list is my host in Beijing, China.(picture right end back) When I was in Vietnam, I sent e-mail to him. He wrote me back same day and said “You are very welcome to Beijing!” I felt so good and I decided to visit Beijing. When I arrived Beijing, I called to him. He came to pick me up soon. 2 French around the world cyclists and 2 Korean around the world cyclists were already his house at same day. I got very nice time to stay his apartment house and talk to him and other cyclists. The location is very good center of Beijing. David is so kind man. He is Spanish cyclist lives in Beijing and he cycled from Madrid to Beijing to see Olympic game 2008.

Thanks David!!

There are many interesting historical and cultural places in Beijing. Forbidden city, Summer palace, The Great Wall, Temple of Heaven, Ming Tombs and Pekin Man site are UNESCO Heritage site in Beijing. Mr. Haile Gebrselassie who is Ethiopian marathon world record holder did not join to Beijing Olympic game 2008 because he was worry about his health by air pollution. Beijing is most polluted city in the world according to Lonely Planet guide book. But I have never feel so polluted city during I stayed here.
