From O’Hare to Beijing

Here is a quick photo summary of the first couple of days of our trip. More narrative and pics to come later! We are going to the Great Wall (Mutianyu section) this morning, so I can’t miss the bus!

    Great pictures! Especially fitting is the one of Wilson stocking up on Tortas Fronteras for the flight. Why did the locals want to be in your picture–is it because you’re foreigners?
