Safe and Simple Travels!

Just a quick update to let you know we have arrived safely in China. We arrived at our hotel-Holiday Inn Downtown Beijing around 2:00pm China time (about 1:00am Illinois time). So, we pretty much been awake for almost 24 hours straight. As I write, it is now 9:00pm in China (8:00am in llinois). I am feeling good and Melissa has been asleep for a couple hours. This, is not a good thing, as she will likely wake me up in a few hours wanting "to talk"--as if the three words I already gave her on the 14 hour flight are somehow insufficient for her emotional tank. We have met a few families that are part of our agency's group--some from St. Lous, some from Mt. Prospect, some from Conneticut. Tomorrow, most all of us will tour Beijing-Forbidden City, Tiannamen Square, Hutong Village, Olympic Birds Nest, which should be fun.

Be patient with the blog. It will be "boring" compared to prior trip because Cole, Shelby, Piper, Bill, and Linda provided most of the writing entertainment and sadly they are not here this time. Also, apparently China has blocked Blogspot, so the updates will be brief and potentially without photos. I do not think even NiteCruzer can solve this one.

Love to all.
