Beijing Day 1

Hi all,

Fortunately we did not have to get up too early today, as we were up so late last night. We did some paperwork for the immigration today in the morning, and left for the Beijing zoo at 12. Boy, are those pandas ever lazy!!!! The pics show them laying around. Again, it was really hot and hazy today - the visability was quite poor all day. That did not stop it from being really hot though. The zoo and the summer palace were packed with tourists.....we never see the crowds that you see here!!! You almost have to forget your manners, and shove on through!!!! The other pictures attached are of the marble boat at the summer palace, and a boat that takes passengers across the lake. There is a huge amount of history attached to this place - I am looking forward to learning more about it.

Love to all from China,

Grampie, Mommie, and Caitlin

Looking forward to finally seeing that little beauty. Allie and Katie think she looks like a little doll and can't wait to see her!!!! Only 6 more sleeps until Caitlin gets to Canada.

    Hey Marie
    I can't tell you how happy it makes me to know that you are actually holding that gorgeous baby girl of yours in your arms! Congratulations to you and Jason on becoming first time parents. What an incredible feeling it must be!
