We are in Beijing!

Well, we did the very thing we were not going to do! When we got here it was about 2:00 in the afternoon (2:00 am for us at home) and we were going to stay up so that we could sleep tonight but somehow we all fell asleep and just woke up at 9:30 pm. So now it is night and we are awake! Pat was desperately trying to get someone to help him turn on the air conditioning in our room and has finally gotten someone that could explain to him that the hotel has only "natural wind" for cooling!

Our flights were wonderful and on time. Every time we fell asleep it seemed they were waking us up to give us more food! We are amazed that you can get half way across the world and arrive within minutes of our scheduled time but try to fly through Atlanta and you will be delayed for sure!

Our guide was waiting for us when we arrived and he got us safely to our hotel. The hotel is nice and located in the business district. He gave us lots of instructions for going out, but I think we will be saving that for tomorrow! Now we are just going to get dinner in the hotel.

I'm still trying to figure out about blogging from here, so hopefully this will post okay! We will update tomorrow!
