In Beijing

We made it! The flight was loooooong, but mostly uneventful. We flew from Chicago across Canada, over the Artic Circle, Siberia, and then into China. It was facinating to look out and see nothing but a blinding white sheet of ice. Our landing was pretty turbulent. Happily Charli slept until we taxied to the terminal. Julie and I were a little rubber legged, but we managed to navigate the airport and find a shuttle bus to take us to our hotel. We are spending the evening resting up. Tomorrow we are going to the Great Wall. I promise lots of pictures. Hopefully they will be a little more interesting.
When in Bejing... order room service! Before you think I'm being a total wimp, let me say that the burger had a definate Asian flair. Ginger flavored meat, bacon, cheese, and a fried egg. Different, but good.

We also tried this tasty orange drink. I love the wrapper.
