我在飞机上写这篇小文章。八个小时以前,我们从纽约起飞了。我们从我们现在的地方到北京首都国际机场要六个小时。

费际国的不错。有的同学睡觉,有的同学听音乐,有的同学看电影。飞机上也有一个其他纽约的学校。

我们有十二个学生和三个老师。我们在北京见二、三个老师。

我们在纽约机场过两个小时。我们拖行李以后,去有的饭店吃一分小吃。我们去登机口做飞机。

我们到北京的时候是下午三点。我们把行李放在小巴。以后,我们做小巴去酒店。我们在卧室就休息休息。今天晚上我们去一家餐馆吃云南菜。我喜欢云南菜;又清单的,又辣的。中国有很多不一样的菜。上海菜是甜的。四川菜和湖南菜是辣的。广东菜是清单的。

在这个勃洛克,你们会读中文和英文的小文章,有时候有别的人写小文章。

好,我现在去睡觉。我们到北京有很高兴!一会儿见!

I am on the plane writing this post. We took off from New York 8 hours ago. We now have 6 hours to go until we land in Beijing’s Capital International Airport.

The plane ride is not bad. Some people are sleeping, some people are listening to music, and some people are watching a movie. There is also another school from New York on the plane.

On our trip, we have 12 students and 3 teachers. We will meet another 2-3 teachers in Beijing.

We will arrive in Beijing at 3:00pm. We will collect our luggage and put it in the bus. Afterwards, we will take a bus to go to our hotel. We will spend some time relaxing in our rooms. Tonight we will go to a restaurant featuring cuisine from Yunnan province. I like Yunnan food-it is spicy but a little light in flavor. Chinese cuisine has many flavors. “Native” Shanghai food is usually sweet. Food from Sichuan and Hunan provinces are quite spicy. Food from Guangdong province is light in flavor.

On this blog, you will be able to read posts in both English and in Chinese. Posts will sometimes be written by other people.

I’m going to go to sleep now. We are all really excited to land in Beijing! See you soon!

      Hi! The air’s not too bad. We had a delicious dinner, and we took a picture of Flat Stanley at the restaurant! Everyone is really tired. We have an early start tomorrow-8:00!

Great to hear! We will think of you starting your next adventure at Lu’s bedtime. Lu wants to know if you all like the Flat Stanley that she made. 🙂
