Ni Hao from Beijing!

After a 12-hour flight to Tokyo, a 2-hour layover, and another 4-hour flight to Beijing, we're finally sitting in our hotel room! We came a day early to get acclimated to the time change, so we'll just be taking it easy tomorrow (Friday). If anything, we may go swimming in the hotel pool and walk to the nearby WalMart and whatever else might be close by. The sightseeing begins on Saturday!

How you can relax, I don't know! All I would be thinking is "meet the baby, meet the baby!" Have a great time. Can't wait to see you all together.
