Greetings From China!
We made it! The flight was LONG. 13 hours of sitting down does not agree well with me haha Our first flight was delayed by an hour, but we arrived with time to spare for our second flight. We met up with another family in our group on the long flight. Last night, we settled into our room and went out with our friends for dinner. Dinner was absolutely delicious and CHEAP, which is right up our alley. We had a pork noodle dish, beef dish, and some steamed greens. With tip, it came out to around $15 total. After dinner, we took a stroll through Beijing. The city is very busy, but it was very nice. We were trying to stay up and adjust to the local time. It worked so far. We stayed up late and slept really well last night. We woke up this morning and went to breakfast. The buffet is huge. We are going on tours of Tienneman Square and a rickshaw ride today. Forgive me if I get the spelling wrong, but we are paying for internet and don't want to use alot of time on here. Here are a few pictures. Nothing exciting just yet. Hoping to have something better for you guys to see later on when I post. Blessings from China, Tasha
