We're Here!!!!!! con't

Hi All!

After a LONG flight (it was really not too bad, although there were only catnaps to be had - there was quite a lot of leg room, so that was not a problem...) we arrived at Beijing Airport. It was VERY busy, but uneventful - no problems with customs. We navigated our way through throngs of people all hurrying toward a destination, and boarded a bus to our hotel. We received our luggage in our room, and tried to get organized for the next day.

At 2:15, we met and went to a local supermarket to purchase some bottled water and other snacks, and went back to the hotel. Dad and I were pretty tired, having been up for many more hours than we were used to, so we took a quick cat nap.

Dinner was at a local restaurant, and it was delicious! Afterwards, it was pouring, so we took a local conveyance back to the hotel (see attached picture of Dad with the driver).

We went right to bed and had a good sleep.

Love and miss you all, especially you, daddy to be!
