We have made it Beijing! We had a 13 hour flight and it was not too
bad..... Declan did really well and we all slept a bit. We flew United
and there were no issues. Our guide William met us at the airport and
delivered us to our hotel The Novotel Beijing Xinqiad. We managed a
short walk around the area and had a bite to eat at Starbucks :) our
authentic Chinese experience will begin tomorrow - tonight was about
survival - which included coffee.
As for now - it is 2:30 in the morning and we are up for a brief snack
and short video - then off to sleep again....
Once we find our camera cord we will download our pictures!
