First Day in China
03.09.2010 26 °C
We made it! We arrived in Brijing around 11:30 pm on Thursday. Altogether it turned out to be a pretty smooth trip. We left Wednesay morning as planned. We met Chris, Lora and Lily in Seattle and made the final transpacific leap that evening. Since we crossed the dateline, we lost a day and arrived on Thursday evening in Beijing. Very long day but we are here.
We have spent the first day sightseeing. First, we toured a typical neighborhood by rickshaw. We had an interesting lunch in a Thai restaurant. We finished the afternoon with long walking tour of Tiananmen Square and then the Forbidden City. The whole day has been very interesting but we are absolutely dead tired. We are calling it an early night.
We will post pictures and will be more descriptive after we have settled in. Right now we are all struggling to stay awake.
