Hello folks! Sorry we are just updating our blog..we are trying to figure out this converter/adapter thing and we didn't have internet access the first night.
Okay, so we arrived on Thursday, November 6th in Beijing, China! It was a super l-o-n-g flight, but we made it with the Lord's help. We got in a bit late on Thursday, so we went straight to the hotel. We are staying at Zhaolong Hotel in downtown Beijing. This is truly a city that never sleeps. Cars honking all night long, reminded me of NY. I REALLY tried to get some sleep last night, but I managed not to. Way too much on the brain. This city is beautiful and the people are so very friendly.
Today we started early and went to the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square. It was amazing. It was SO crowded! I don't think I have ever seen that many people at a tourist attraction.
It looks like we will receive Lydia on Monday at 3pm!!!
Tomorrow we will be going the Great Wall and some other amazing places.
By the way, haven't tasted anything unusual yet..but I am hoping to!!
