We made it!

I'm sorry I don't have any pictures to share yet. It has been a long time since we have had sleep. The plane trip went great - just long, REALLY LONG! We rested some but never really slept. Tomorrow, our guide, Christina, will meet us in the morning for a shopping day. Christina met us at the airport in Beijing and took us to our hotel. It is downtown Beijing. Very loud and very crowded. More people than I have ever seen! She helped us exchange our money, buy bottled water(to brush our teeth with and for drinking), and helped us hook up the computer. All of theses were major undertakings and took well into the evening. I promise to post pictures of our day tomorrow!
