Robin, Skip & Laura's Trip to China
Beijing Day One Friday 17th
After a sixteen hour direct flight from Newark (50 miles from from the North Pole and over Siberia) to Hong Kong, a two our layover in Hong Kong, and a 3 hour flight to Beijing, we finally arrived totally jet-lagged and tired. We crossed the international date line and after a good nights sleep we joined the others for sightseeing in the City. On the First Day, we visited the Palace, Tianenmen Square, the Forbidden City, the Summer Palace, and the Pearl factory. Hit Counter
