As a side note, at the start of the nights adventure I went back into the hotel to get my camera. Reached into my bag to get it but all I could feel was something soft and squidgy. I gave it a good squeeze to try and get an idea what it was, and it felt like a sandwich! I quickly withdrew and saw that my bag was in fact the next to this one, and so quickly got my camera and left. So whoever it was that went to the Great Wall and found that their loving made sandwich had morphed into a Henry Moore sculpture it was not a miracle it was me!
It is interesting that in North America it is only after 911 tragedy, that people are realizing the importance of passports.
Your passport is the most single important document that you can own. The only one, recognizable by every country in the globe. Nowadays passport is mandatory for travel to most places even for North Americans.
If you are planning a trip or travel a lot, apply for a passport. And most importantly remember to renew it ? We have a huge number of passengers who where denied boarding because their passport was expired.
In pre-internet age, to book a trip you had to see a travel agent. And your travel agent would check your documents and would inform you if you needed a visa, or your passport was expired. Now after being hit by technology you are on your own buying your travel online !!
Even if you are using a travel agent, most of the times it’s over the phone or by e-mail. Your travel agent may not see you or your documents and may just ask if your passport is valid or if you have proper visa. I know I have a few wonderful clients, who’ve been working with for years and haven’t met them yet. I just know their voices. If I see any of them in person I won’t recognize them until they speak.
Today most travelers are very knowledgeable. But most people miss to check the expiry date of their passports. If you are traveling with two passports make sure both are valid. Having one valid passport won’t necessarily let you travel to your destination or pass through a transit point.
Sunday was spent trying to tune in my body to Beijing time, so didn’t do a lot. Went out to some bars with some mates, didn’t have much to drink but still got back to the hotel at 3.30am
Monday was spent trying to chase down a Kyrgyzstan visa, but the embassy was closed (til Wednesday I think) so just wandered around Tienanmen Square and some markets. Wasn’t really hungry, and certainly didn’t fancy skinned day old chick kebabs, neither come to mention did the baby scorpion, crickets, grubs or seahorse kebabs appeal.
Just a quick note to say that I have arrived safely in Beijing. Wasn’t all plain sailing though, problems getting through departures which meant that I was late getting on to the plane, so much so that they actually took my name off the flight. But it all ended in smiles. Haven’t done much today as when I landed at 9.30am Beijing time it would have been 1am UK time, so when I should have been looking forward to going to bed I had to start a new day! Found a nice hostel, but the taxi man tried to rip me off – buggers the lot of ’em. But the time I had a little wander around, sorted some money out, bought a couple things, got something to eat and had a nap it is now 8.10pm so will just chill out tonight. Bit nippy today -3 degrees. I’ll probabley hire out a bike tomorrow and do a bit of sightseeing. Apart from that not a lot to report. Oh, my backpack should arrive tomorrow (same thing happened last time I was here); hopefully just a day, last time was it took 5 days to arrive.
