On Ward

After arriving safely yesterday, Bob and I hit the town. We are off to the Forbidden City now. More to follow.

The Day Of....

We are enroute! Bob and I have met up at Washington-Dulles Airport, where we enjoyed a bit of breakfast, and we are now touring the airport, as we have a couple of hours to kill until our Beijing flight. We are both a bit tired, as I did not sleep at all, and Bob only crashed for about an hour on the sofa, but we will have all that flight to snooze. And went we hit Beijing, we will be rested for a night on the town.

The Day Before

We are down to the day before, and the excitement is building. It will be worth getting up at 2:00 AM to catch a flight. This is the trip of a lifetime for me, and I am extremely thankful to have this opportunity.

Everyone is asking if I have finished packing yet, and the answer is, "Of course not!" For this trip, however, I will refrain from waiting until the car arrives to start throwing stuff in a suitcase.
