Ready to start our sightseeing!
Good morning Beijing! We had a long journey! Our crazy day began with our flight from Louisville leaving 40 minutes late which led to running trough the Minneapolis airport to catch the flight to Tokyo with 10 minutes to spare! A little more running followed to catch the flight to Beijing. All that running was worth it when we were upgraded to first class on our flight to Beijing! We are now spoiled! Our guide,Alice was waiting for us after we came through customs. She is wonderful and I can't wait to introduce her! Today we will be traveling to the Forbidden City, Tiannimen Square, and the hutongs in the older part of Beijing. More updates and photos later!
