We are officially in Beijing! A few hiccups, our Luggage was overweight so we had to buy 2 additional bags at the airport to spread the weight around, so we arrived with 6 pieces of Luggage not including 2 carry-ons. Our guide mentioned that we must be very rich! HA! Get rid of the baby formula, diapers and toys that we packed and I think it would be half of our belongings!
Also, tried getting onto my blog via my work VPN...nope nothing. Then downloaded expressVPN...struck out again. Even trying to look at other VPN sites I was blocked. It's incredible how little you can access over here. Thankfully I found another VPN 'GoTrusted' and BINGO! it worked!....so here I am.
Hotel is beautiful, all geared up for CNY. I am sure it will be beautiful walking around the next few weeks seeing all the decorations. Madison is watching one of her DVD's and eating KD (brought some instants from home, a life safer!...way too tired to go out tonight) and Gilles is already asleep.
Tomorrow we will walk around to get our bearings and will head to the Bird's Nest and Water Cube at dusk to experience all the glorious colours. Will post pics tomorrow!
