We had a fun, safe, easy and uneventful flight Kigali to Beijing. After immigration and customs we walked out of the secure area and found Mi Nan holding up a sign for us! We enjoyed a short ride through the city to our hotel as Mi Nan described the details of the next few days complete with “being in Beijing” advice and tips. We took a walk around the block and I kid you not, this city smells like yummy Chinese food everywhere we’ve been! Perhaps it’s because we’ve been walking up and down restaurant alley.
Exhausted and off to bed. Tomorrow we will relax, rest and plan to visit Tian An Men Square and the Beijing Zoo where we’ll see tons of Panda Bears! Tomorrow night we’ll be joined by two other families who are adopting through our same agency (Christian World Adoption). One of the families will be with us the entire time and are also bringing their seven year old on the journey. We’re looking forward to meeting them and sharing all of this with them.
Internet is SLOW….. and I can’t seem to get on Facebook… But I am able to download pictures and hopefully post this message!
