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.
