Beijing Arrival Tour

We will be spending our first week in Beijing with the entire group of 60+ people going over with the China Horizons program before making the trip down to Zhanjiagang. I thought it would be fun for you to have a heads up on some of the things you have to look forward to seeing & hearing about from our Beijing trip. I'm getting really excited to be there but not so excited about the flight over. Tuesday is fast approaching and I'm already having dreams about being there. I obviously can't wait for the experience!

We want to check out this really popular night market with tons of crazy food to eat...

as well as the water cube from the 2008 Olympics....

 and the Temple of Heaven....

Who knows what else we will do but stay tuned for the details on all of it. It's sure to be an adventure!

I'm currently enjoying the perks of America while I still can. Next stop the airport....time to go double check my bags for plenty of deodorant, razors, sunscreen, makeup that doesn't bleach your skin, and other luxuries not found in the orient.
Your eager friend,
