We made it. It's 9:30pm Thursday night in Beining China!!!. It has been a very long day of traveling and not eating fish on the plane. Our flight to San Francisco was delayed, causing us to miss our flight to Beijing. We were rebooked with China Air and had a very smooth flight. When we arrived at the Beijing airport we were greeted with a huge starbucks sign...I wasn't expecting that. After calling our group leader, we were welcomed by a man that couldn't speak English, except for saying "soft" as he felt my new sweat shirt from Tanger Mall. He hailed a taxi for us and sent us on our way. Our taxi driver was the best, he did not care who else was on the street, we were going to win...and we did. We have all our luggage and I think our minds. I want to go out on the town and eat at McDonalds just for the fun of it, Sherry would be just fine staying in the room until tomorrow. I think I can get her to go, they may have sweet corn pies at McDonalds instead of hot apple pies. These were AWESOME in Thailand.
