We begin our journey tomorrow!
Diana and I will spend the night near the San Francisco airport tomorrow night, then take the shuttle to the airport Friday morning to fly to Beijing! We arrive at 2:30 PM on Saturday March 14th. Our friends Karen and Emi are on the same flight with us, so we are very excited. Our friends Mindy, Hannah and Lilly land just five minutes after we do, so we should all be traveling to our Beijing hotel together. Saturday we are having dinner and an orientation meeting and hopefully a good night sleep. Sunday is our trip to the Great Wall and Monday we visit The Forbidden City. I am glad we will be returning again in December because our visit in Beijing will be quick. Hopefully our next entry will include photos of the excited but weary travelers!
