Another sunny weekend can mean only one thing, another daytrip beckons. This time, after consulting 'the insiders guide to Beijing' we decide to go to a place called Jinshantalin – Silver Mountain, Pagoda Forest. The four of us, Jonathan, Lindsay, Brent and I, all meet in Jian Wai SOHO in Beijing's CBD. There are two things we must do before we can do anything else. First thing is; a coffee from Starbuck's, second; a sandwich from Sunbird Sandwich. Fresh and refueled we set off in search of yet another obscure bus station.
