After arriving at the Des Moines airport just before 5 am on Sunday, August 1 our team arrived on-time in Beijing early afternoon on Monday, August 2.
To adjust to the jet lag we made a dash to experience the Great Wall. Arriving late in the afternoon with an excellent guide we enjoyed the immensity of the Great Wall prior to checking into our overnight hotel.
Today we leave the hotel at 5:30 am and will travel by plane to Kunming where we will connect with our local contacts and then fly to Zhongdian (know as Shangri La) late this evening.
We will keep you posted.
