Wu Shu Demo

After our free day, we face another 5 days of intense training. The programme remains, but there is far more to master for each of us.

The weather stays hot, around 30-33 degrees, unfortunately with a significant increase in humidity… After trainings you feel like leaving the shower.

After two hours intensive climbing we got on the wall (since we missed the
right road to get up, normally it takes only some 45′).

Imperial Beijing

Beste tochtgenoten,

Jullie gaan wat meer Engels te lezen krijgen daar ik me nu wat meer

foto’s. Onze blog is tot onze grote spijt gecensureerd op het Chinese
grondgebied. Daardoor duurt het soms wat langer vooraleer we nieuws naar
