All costs for obtaining Philippine visa in Beijing unsuccessful, we drove to get it to the embassy quarter, that in the Yabaolu area, Monday. Got this lovely sticker, with which you can travel to the Philippines 30 days.
The process of filing, list of required documents and the experience of application, we detail previously painted. After obtaining a passport, happy went for a massage. All Russian-speaking tourists, who visited the Yabaolu, наверно видели Alien street trade market. The required interior is a bit in the next building to the north. But be sure to find Grisha – best massage therapist lives in a department with Tianshi teas and other Herbalife.
For 60 yuan – great back massage with banks, needles and warming. But with Chinese masseurs need to pre-arrange everything in detail, that will be included in the price: this time we have not found Grisha and full massage was worse, while the masseuse Tanya offered separately as banks, then the needle, then warming, seeking to extract 50-60 yuan for each item. And then we went into one of the stores, where he bought a small piece of Russian cheese, that there is a great joy, and ran back to the station.

Ran fast and it seemed to us, that we will have time. We really had almost, only at the entrance to the station inspector long peered at my ticket, because the sale of the cashier took it and drove a number of one of visas. Station workers have been searching for this room, remained 5 minutes, and when we ran to the door on the platform, gates were closed. Indeed, in the waiting rooms and the front of the gate hangs a lot of tablets: Gate closes five minutes before the train departure.
Oddly, and it was a surprise for us – exchanged for free tickets. I had another hour to sit at the station and the train instead of T, we got a slow train K, at the same time issued a ticket without a seat. On the other hand, it was interesting to learn, that the tickets can be so simply exchanged at the checkout station (usually extreme window). Stand-up is not always a terrible option – chances, that someone will not come (we, my train). Here, too, we were lucky, passengers do not come and we were even able to take two chairs, funny Chinese students laughed at our pronunciation and explain to us different characters all the way.
Some of the most enjoyable events, that occur over a long period of absence from their native lands, a meeting with friends, who strangely find themselves on the achievable distance from you. In his trip to India Several years ago, I met a colleague in one of the Goan clubs, in 4 am, accidentally.
And this time, our friend Evgeny turned out to be a drive for one day in Beijing, on the way back from Shanghai to St. Petersburg. And of course, Meet him there was a need to, even if the time was only three hours for lunch and a walk on Wangfujing.
Friends, we are always happy to see, anywhere in the world. Will close – let me know!
Back, I, again not nearly missed the train and when it is thought, now vstryanu an hour or two, and I have a lesson at six o'clock in the evening, it just became bad. But when I got to the station – turned, that my train was delayed for 40 minutes. But on the train, my neighbor asked: “You need to go there?” - What I asked: “And you do Chinese?” So I met Vanya - native Baodina, who speaks in Russian and lives in Moscow for 7 years. Chatted with him all the way.
He told me, that Moscow is better…
