Hello Friends & Family,

It is currently 8:10pm on Friday, 1/6 and we have finally settled into our hotel room.  We started our day very early waking up at 5am to get ready.  It's been a really long day of travel with a 12 hour flight.  Sophie did really good, I think Greg and I were more uncomfortable then she was. 

Beijing is incredible in the evening.  There is a lot of hustle and bustle, car horns blarring and the driving is just like in the Philippines where lines are really only a suggestion.  We are sooo tired that we're skipping dinner and heading straight to bed.  Tomorrow stay tuned for pictures from our tour of the Great Wall!


  1. So good to hear that you are all safe! Have fun in Beijing! Can't wait for you all to get back with DASH!!!!

  2. We watched Karate Kid and pointed out the scenes of the Great Wall telling Jude that's where Soph is at. He asked if we could meet you guys there =]

  3. AWESOME!!! so excited, thought about you guys all day today. Glad Sophie did well...never easy to travel with littles. Only a couple more days, can hardly wait to see the pics. Have a wonderful time and safe travels. xoxo
