We started our trip in Beijing on Thursday, 1:02 a.m., eastern standard time, after a long, 13-hour flight.
We first found ourselves in Bejing having drinks at our hotel watching a busker play a traditional instrument.
As I texted the girls, “Going to be 80 tomorrow. Glad I brought long sleeves!”
Tomorrow we walk all over the major sites. Tom already had a woman asked to be photographed with him, which was very funny to us.
