Beijing 2008 - The Summer Olympiad: Leaving The Olympic Area for the airport

A friend of mine joined me last night at about 10:30p. He had mis-connected the night before in Tokyo and had spent the night in the Narita area.

I went to meet him in the pouring rain and then we went out to the Village; by now it had stopped raining.

The next morning, we were up atom at 4:15a and was out of the hotel by 5:05a. it was smooth sailing to the airport except that all the other cabs were passing us out.

We did not know which terminal Northwest uses at the airport so we decided to go to Terminal 3 first. The lady at the hotel told the cabbie where to go before we left. The plan was that if we got there and it was the wrong terminal, we would just go to the next one.

We noticed that there was a turn off for Terminal 3 and there were no signs that told us which terminal was which.
