Updated! Now with a new chapter and exciting photos of my third visit to Beijing!
Get set for Jet Lag Jerry! Join me as I take you on a whirlwind tour of our wonderful world. Don't worry, I'll do all the hard work (the standing in line for visas and security, the shriek-inducing vaccinations, the twelve hour flights, the shoving of three days' clothing for two types of weather into the confines of a carry on, the conversion of yuan or reals into dollars and back, the dysentery). You just need to sit back in the comfort of your sofa or bed or subway seat, wherever you happen to be reading this (though in the case of the subway seat, maybe 'comfort' isn't the right word), and travel with me.
First stop, Beijing, China, and one of the truly incredible Seven Modern Wonders of the World, the Great Wall. What delights of the Mysterious Orient did I discover there? What shocks lurk beyond public restroom doors? What flavors of potato chips startle the Western palate? How can you find somebody who speaks English? (It's easier than you think.) And, once you've hauled yourself up to the heights of the Great Wall, how on earth do you get back down? Read and find out!
This is the first in an exciting series of travelogues, Around The World With Jet Lag Jerry. With photos!
