Leaving for China!

Friday, May 06, 2005
Shannon at Narita Airport in Tokyo, waiting to go to Beijing.

It was a long series of flights! We left Dallas at 9:55 a.m. for Los Angeles and then headed from LA to Tokyo after a short stopover. The flight to Tokyo was 11 hours and 30 minutes. We then headed from Tokyo to Beijing (another 4 hour flight). When we arrived in Beijing at 9:55 p.m. (that is 8:55 a.m. CST) we were met by Ike, our GWCA/Adoption guide. We were then escorted to the Sino-Swiss Hotel. Before we went to bed, we had a nightcap at the Warp 8 Bar in the hotel. What a riot! There was a band playing 80s music and we were amused by the audience members who would jump on stage to join in!
