We made it!
I can't believe we are in Beijing! We got from Phx to San Francisco just in time for a potty stop and then right on to the gate where they had already started boarding. It couldn't have worked out any better. We got in a couple of hours ago and the long flight was basically uneventful, except for a few series of turbulence. Christine, you would have been climbing the walls on the plane trying to sit still for 12 hours! They have movies running the entire flight expect for when they stop to feed you. Susan, I remembered what you said about the infamous noodle bowl...not good! All the other food was good and the flight attendents were very friendly.
It's only 7pm on Friday night here, but we are dog tired since our bodies think it's 4am on Friday morning. I think we are going to get something to eat and then crash for the night.
Here's a couple pics of the room...small, but nice.
and here's a lovely self portriat after a full day of traveling...
