Our group of travelers landed in Beijing on time and were met at the airport by Lynn their guide for the next two days. They checked into their hotel, rested for a short period and headed out to dinner. By all reports from Cate and Jackie, the flight was long and everyone is tired but excited to eat some food and have a really good night’s sleep. The group will travel to the Great Wall tomorrow so stay tuned for pictures and more updates!
After an early morning departure, the group arrived at Newark International Airport with plenty of time to change money, eat some brunch and get excited for their adventure ahead.
The group boarded their United Airlines flight #089 and took off about 5 minutes later than expected. They are scheduled to arrive in Beijing tomorrow, Monday 3/11, at 2:58 pm local time (2:58 am EST on Monday). Stay tuned for more blog posts once our intrepid travelers arrive in China.
