Ready to go!!
We received our travel plan yesterday and are awaiting UPS as we speak to receive our passports and visas! I finished packing my suitcase and am completely amazed that I was able to get everything inside and it actually zips easily!! We are going carry-on only and I had my doubts but it looks like it is not going to be a problem!! Just to give you some idea as to how things will go.... We leave for Beijing next Wednesday the 15th arrive at 3 on the 16th. We will tour the Forbidden City, Great Wall, Pearl factory and Jade factory. We leave Beijing on Saturday and fly to Changsha in the Hunan Provence. On Monday we get to meet Mikala! We will tour Changsha, they have a embroidery factory, until Saturday and when we will fly to Guangzhou to finalize her paperwork and receive her Visa. On Wednesday the 29th we fly home!!! We will have taken a total of 7 airplanes by the time we get home!!!
