Beijing, China

I spent the morning at an internet cafe catching up on news and emails. My token sightseeing stop was the Chinese Revolutionary History Museum, half of which was closed, the other half consisting of a single (though large) room with an assortment of artifacts dating from various periods of Chinese history. The highlight was a full body burial suit made entirely out of jade.

Back at the hotel, I took a long swim in the pool and then returned to my room to relax. I was feeling under the weather in the evening due to a mild fever, so I stayed in to sort through my bags.
