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. 🙂
