FolkestoneJack's Tracks

Homeward bound

Posted in Beijing, China by folkestonejack on December 20, 2009

Arrived in Beijing at about 7.30am and stopped off in an airport hotel to refresh before heading to the airport. In spite of the snow in Europe our flights were operating ok, although we were delayed for an hour by a problem with the computer controlling the toilets on our plane (of all things!).

As it was the shortest night of the year we had the strange experience of chasing the sunset – with a striking orange, red and pink glow from our windows for what felt like a good proportion of our flight. It was good to make it back, though as I am at work tomorrow I will have to wait a little bit longer before I can have a lazy morning!
