We had a good day today. It started off great because we were headed to China to get Norah and it just got better from there. I was worried that we would miss our connecting flight so I asked the flight attendant on the first flight what was the best way to get from Terminal A to C in the Newark airport. He gave us a good tip to take the shuttle bus and then we would not have to go back through security. It only took us 12 mins. to get from terminal A to C without going back through that mess of a check point. So we made it just in time to take turns to run use the restroom and then immediatley get in line to board our flight to Beijing.

Lori had a rough time on the flight just before we landed, she wasn’t the only one, some people had to use the barf bags and some didn't get to them in time because the turbulence was rocky at the end of the Beijing flight and then the bus ride to the hotel was an adventure that I am glad I did not miss out on.
Check out the dragons back. This is tirport terminal at Beijing. It just opened before the Olympic games. The guides all told us that it is representative of a dragon.
Beijing has fabulous architecture both new and thousands of years old. I hope to get some better photos of it tomorrow.
Love your parents Annie!
Annie’s parents were so excited to find out we were coming to Beijing. We didn’t even get our room key before we were both making plans to meet up. Lori was sick as a dog, so she couldn’t go out to dinner with us. She told me to go ahead because she didn't want me to miss out just because she wasn't feeling well. It was a shame to because we had the best time. Annie’s grandma was able to join us too. Annie has such a kind and loving family, they made me feel right at home like I was out to eat with friends I had known forever. Boy can they order some food we must of all had 12-14 different kinds of dishes all from the southern region of China. It was fantastic. We will be with the tour group tomorrow, then they want to take Lori and I out for Peking Duck and a play at dinner time. Sounds like fun! We will have to see what tomorrow brings. Today I had a blast and we got one more day, and thousands of miles closer to Norah.
