Thank you for your prayers surrounding travel and entry today! After a little more than 15 hours on a couple planes today, we’ve made it to Beijing! It’s amazing how tired you still get after sitting for so long. It was a very smooth and non-eventful day today and we are looking forward to a restful night’s sleep, getting acclimated to the new time zone and stretching our legs out tomorrow as we visit the Great Wall.
Though we’ve only seen a sliver of the city, we can’t get over the sheer size and scale of it. The quick drive to the hotel on a few massive highways and crowded side streets made us particularly glad we aren’t renting a car and driving in it.
We look forward to taking in more of the sites tomorrow.
We are so excited for you guys! Just soak it all up and enjoy every minute of your time there! We can’t wait to read and see more! Praying that God continues to go before you!
We can see from the photos you are enjoying your trip. You smiles tell it all. The best is yet to come. Great pics! The wall and Olympic Village bring back some memories. Praying God’s blessing on you all.
