At 8:00 am, we were on our way to the airport.
On the ride there, we could not believe that we were still awake and charged up like energizer bunnies. We talked about just how surreal this whole experience is. It was hard to believe that in just two days, we two would now be three! We could not even begin to fathom the changes in our life.
The flight was long (14 hours) but fortunately we were tired enough to sleep through a good part of it. Then we ate, then we tried to read and fell asleep again. Then we ate again, tried to read again, fell asleep again...you get the picture! During our waking hours, we noted the time remaining and watched the progress of the flight on the monitor just willing the plane to fly faster!
Finally, at 3:30 pm, we touched down in Beijing.
