It was a REALLY hot day (40 C, 104 F), apparently the hottest July day in Beijing in over 60 years. That did not scare us and we went wandering into Beijing's famous Huttong district (small stone houses that use to cover Beijing a the turn of the century) to the north, next to the Drum and Bell Towers, and then walked to the Behai Park with a nice pause on the lake (electric boats = much better than pedal boats under the dreadful heat). When we finally got home, Matthias and Oscar were walking zombies! Maybe it was a bit too much!
