GSI China Trip – Made it to Beijing!

After 5500 miles, and 11.5 hours, the GSI China Trip group finally made it to Beijing!  36 of us have had a very long day, in fact we crossed the International Date Line and lost a day(I think).  I’ve stopped counting how many hours I’ve been up!  The flight was wonderful from fresh warm towels before meals to free souvenir socks, to a laser light to the head.  Yes, a laser light – to check our temperature for swine flu safety.  Our tour provider met us at customs as expected, then brought us to enjoy our first Chinese meal (not counting the airline meals) – Cantonese style.  Stay  tuned – there’s more to come!
