Just want to let everyone know that we are finally in Beijing China!! What a LLLOOONNGGG , crowded, cramped, (did I say long?!) flight!! Our first impression of China was that they LOVE heat! They must have had the airport heat cranked to 90 degrees! And once outside it was not much better, the temperture was nice but not cold, and very dry. So here we are, from Florida, taking things off and everyone else is bundling up lol. Our guide is very nice, really wants us to be comfortable. The hotel is OK. We went out last night and had chinese, mine was very good. Glenn liked mine better than his and Logan liked his well enough except for all the tiny chicken bones...YIKES! We were extremely exhausted and went to sleep about 830pm (time here) last night, slept until about 11pm and we were all out of bed by 130am and have been up ever since! We are getting ready to go and tour the Great Wall, Jade factory, and Forbidden City! Maybe, just maybe we will sleep tonight!! Basically, I think we are all three just passing time until Monday!!!!
