6:28 pm 5/4/11 CDT (7:28am 5/5/11 in China) – The internet in our room does not work, so thanks to the Jahn’s for letting me visit bright (smoggy) and early this morning!
We’ve made it back to Beijing. Yesterday we toured the “Grand Canyon” of Laiwu. It was gorgeous! A great warmup for our adventure today – the Great Wall. We had an authentic Chinese lunch and then our long bus ride back to Beijing. We had dinner at Pizza Hut last night!
Today will be very busy – Great Wall, Jade factory, Olympic stadiums, dinner and a martial arts show. Hopefully will be able to update on all that later!
