we made it

We r in Beijing


After 2 hours of sleep we hoped the flight to San Francisco, then
a 12 1/2 hour flight 2 Beijing. The flight was long but uneventful.
But after landing we were told 2 sit back down. Two men came in
With a mask over their nose and mouth, and with a thermometer took
each persons temp. The thermometer looks like a small gun that they hold
Close to one's forehead.
We passed that and got off the plane.
We had to pass by another infrared thermometer before customs.
We found a taxi, showed him our hotel address and made it to the hotel. They
told us we only had 1 room not 2. They helped Mike get into the internet to
find his reservation and we got our 2nd room.
We dropped our bags, caught a taxi and made our way to Tinamimem Square.
Everyone tried 2 b Mike's friend and one invited us 2 a tea festival which was
going into a horrid little restaurant 2 c them show us their tea. We were starving
so said no thanks and went off to find some Peking duck. By then it was 9 pm here
Someone pointed out a good restaurant turns out it only sells Poking duck.
Long day
