April 22, 2018. Lhasa to Beijing

Early morning start in order to catch the plane to Beijing.  Unfortunately, the city closed the road in front of the hotel with no prior notice.  Our driver had to park a block away and we hitched our luggage for the hike down the street.  Not very convenient but we made it to the airport with time to spare.

The 4 hour flight was uneventful and we landed in Beijing around 1 pm.  It seems the city folks like to get away on the weekend and return Sunday afternoon/night.  Traffic was slow getting to our hotel on the north west side.  We are staying adjacent to the Summer Palace at the Aman.  Some of the rooms were part of the original Summer Palace.  All have had a remodel in order to add electrical, water, and HVAC.
