We are here in our hotel room in Beijing, where we arrived just a few moments ago - very tired but happy to be here! The flight was long and uneventful. We slept a little, watched a couple of movies, and chatted with a few of our travel mates. We finally got to meet all the families in our group - eight were on the flight from Chicago and the other two flew directly from New York and San Francisco. We all met up in the Beijing Airport, were greeted by our guide Zhou, and boarded a bus to the hotel. It is raining and very overcast, so we didn't get to see much on the way here, but we will head to the Great Wall and Olympic Stadium tomorrow at 9:00 a.m. It's surreal to finally be here...we are completely exhausted and will take a quick shower then it's bed! We did take a few pictures, which we'll post tomorrow. Goodnight from Beijing!
