Ni Hao! We are here!

We got in to Beijing last night around 9pm...went to our hotel and tried to sleep. The airplane ride was good for the first 8 hours then I got food poisoning and was extremely sick for the rest of the trip.
Today I'm still having a little bit of trouble but am doing better. Gavin is good, he was such a little trooper at all of the outings today! We are all tired beyoned belief and are looking forward to going to sleep as soon as I am done blogging.
Today we went to the Ming Tombs, Jade Factory and the Great Wall. It is a bit chilly here and was very windy at the Wall.
Tomorrow we leave early for the Forbidden City and Tianamen Square, then at noon we go to the Airport to catch our flight to Guangzhou at 2pm. We should land in Guangzhou around 5pm and then we can settle in to our hotel.
We ate duck tonight! It was okay. We met our new friends from Sweden. They are wonderful. They have an adorable daughter from India, and they are getting their son on Monday like us.
Here are a few pictures. Will post more tomorrow :)
