Here I am!

in Beijing

overcast

Hello all! Im alive and well in Beijing! Quite a long journey to get here but well worth it (about 24 hours). Well our flight out of LA was great. We got on a bus and it took us to a terminal waaaay out in the middle of the airfield and we left from there They fed us dinner around 1am, then we all took benadril and slept for over 11 HOURS! Wasnt the best or most comfortable sleep but it made the time go by. Then we woke up for breakfast and only really were awake for two more hours and we laneded in china so it didnt feel like a long flight at all. We landed in Guanhgzou and had a 6 hours lay over but it took us about 2 hours to go through customs. I didnt realize i needed to pick up my checked in bad so i had to go back for it and go through customs AGAIN! Then we had our first real chinese meal. Got on a plane to Beijing and landed 3 hours later. We were kinda freak out at first cuz we realized that we told lihao the wrong time to pick us up but he came after about 30 mins.

We took a taxi to the house and got to see a lot of Beijing. It's really smoggy here but Lihao says most days are better. We get a house to ourselves cuz we are staying in Lihao's Mom's second home. Its nice and big and has AIRCONDITIONING!!! We are close to little shops and resturants which is nice. Had a huge meal last night. We had dumplings, tofu, chicken, weird pickled salad and even mashed potatos!! We drank lots of piju (beer) whiched helped us get to sleep :). So we are here, i think we are almost on china time (I'm still a little tired). Its fun to be in a place so different. Everyone stares at us, and we completely depend on lihao but we are going to try to pick up some more chinese. We only get internet at Liaho's mom's other house so i cant write too much, but i will try. Until next time my friends!! Miss you all!!

Wow, long flight. Iam glad you made it OK. Its 5:26am and iam just haVING some coffee. The boys and I are leaving for Havasu this morning. Iam delivering 3 pontoon trailers out there for work with my truck so I can stay for the weekend. The boys are excited, especially "the skull".The last time we were out there 2 years ago, he was afraid to jump off the boat into the lake. NOW hes is ready. J man is funny that way. Well, be good and aware of your surroundings all the time. Know what I mean? If you can email uncle Ruben a link to your blog. We will be staying with him at the house in Havasu. CHEERS!!
