Technical Difficulties.....August 30, 2007
Had some minor electrical difficulties in the room .....like John plugging in a 110 volt surge protector into a 240 volt outlet!! Accidentaly shut off the electricity to the whole room! Problem is now solved....but we have to leave for the day. Will add more later...with pictures!!!
We just arrived at our hotel in Beijing. The flights were very nice, but very long. The flight from Newark, NJ was over 13 hours. We didn't get much sleep on the plane ( I think we were too excited ). They did feed us quite well, I think they gave us a total of three meals and several snacks along with a champagne toast to our adoption.... Thanks Continental Airlines !! We start our sightseeing in the morning tomorrow. The Great Wall is our first stop then we visit a tea house followed by shopping, lunch and a Chinese acrobatic show at night. Can't wait !! Gonna go now it is 5am to us even though it's 5pm here !! We're going to get some sleep. Will update with pictures from today in a little while.
