Greetings From Beijing

Well, more than 24 hours after the last update, we are here.

The flight from LAX to Guangzhou was nice. Premium Economy was worth the price. We both slept pretty well and then watched stuff on our ipods and read. On the way off the plane, we met two other families from our group, which was great. The flight from Guangzhou to Beijing was crowded and long (and frustrating since we were backtracking) but we survived it.

Beijing is really remarkably smoggy -- it reminds me of the worst of L.A. in the 70s.

About 2 pm here, so cleaning up and then exploring a bit.

The Great Wall tomorrow.
