The weather was grey and foggy from the morning and it only got worse during the day. At lunch time it was almost dark. Whether the darkness was due to heavy clouds or pollution could not be determined. As we got closer to Beijing all roads was blocked by traffic jam. We were lucky to be ordered unto the old road across the Badaling mountains. In spite of rain and fog we sensed the beauty of the mountains - and suddenly we were driving through the Great Wall. Five hours after passing the city limit of Beijing we reached the Tian-anmen square. And it was raining even harder when we got the wires hooked up and started charging Green Car in front of a small hotel in an old neighborhood close to the square - and 12.000 km from Copenhagen.
