After a 28 hour trip, we finally arrived at our final destination. It was all very surreal because Beijing airport area looks much like Detroit. We immediately posed for pictures after the passport check point and retrieved our luggage.
After a short delay due to bus troubles, our tour guide, David met us at the airport and made us feel very welcomed. He taught us how to say how do you do? and thank you in Mandarin Chinese. David is young and immediately bonded with the group. His English is great and he tries very hard to use Americanisms whenever possible. This is very funny sometimes.
