Landed in Beijing
We landed! After what ended up being almost a 15 hour plane ride, with very little sleep, we are here. The sun was setting as we landed and by time we got though customs with all of our bags (hurray!) it was dark. The CCAI representatives for Beijing are two wonderful ladies, one a professional tour guide and the other taking care of all CCAI arrangements.
We have met all but one family, and they are all lovely. Two couples from TN, one from Kansas, one from South Carolina and one still coming from FL. We are anxious to get to know them better.
Once we settled into our hotel, we went to a noodle restaurant and enjoyed a little dinner. We enjoyed some yummy dumplings, and watched the chef make noodles. Fascinating! Boys, it was just like the noodle shop in Kung Fu Panda. 🙂 And it’s true, that authentic Chinese food is nothing like American Chinese food. Different, but very good. Tomorrow, we will venture beyond dumplings, maybe we’ll go to the night market and try scorpion on a stick…maybe.
We’re off to bed. Trying to catch-up for our lost day in the sky.
So happy to be here. One day closer to meeting Lydia!
God is so good!
