Well, its 1:50 pm for y'all, about 2:50 am for me and its been impossible for me to sleep. Of course, as usual, Marc is sleeping like a baby! He may fall asleep abnormally early and get up abnormally early for a few days at first, but atleast he sleeps. Its not fair. Marc and I know from experience that naps are not a good thing when trying to get over jetlag, but our tour leader suggested we go back to our rooms yesterday and get some rest before dinner. Marc stayed strong but I fell alseep for about an 1.5 hours, and now look where I am, wide awake! I'm hoping that the really long day we have a head of us, with no opportunities for naps, will help me. Surely, I will sleep all through the night tonight (Saturday). We will go to Tiananamen Square, the Forbidden City and the Great Wall. We leave at 8:30 am and return at 7:30 pm. Please pray for us. Its so cold and we'll be walking in it all day long. I'm feeling a little sickness coming on and I don't want to feel like ca ca on Monday. (excuse my language :-).
I only have to get through 2.5 more days before I see Sophie. Our itinerary has changed a little, we won't fly to Nanchang until Monday morning, rather than Sunday night. But we will still see Sophie Monday afternoon. Sunday we will go to church and then see some Chinese acrobats that night.
Well, I think I will try to read or watch a movie, that usually puts me right to sleep. We'll see.
By the way, this picture is me trying to tell the street vendors, "no thank-you". In Chinese, you say "Boo-Yaw". The only way I could remember it is because Marc kept saying, "Boo-Ya!".
Love you all,
