We made it to the city of Taiyuan (pronounced "tie" "you" "on"). We left our hotel in Beijing this morning at 8:30am and did sight seeing and then went to the airport at 5:30pm. Then we waited at the aiport until 8:40pm for take off at 9:15. Another family had to wait until after 7, so we had dinner with them at Burger King. I never thought I'd be so happy to see a BK. We landed at 10:15, met our guide and are in our hotel room now at 11:35pm. This was one busy day and we are exhausted. We wanted to post, so that you knew we made it, but we probably will not upload pictures tonight. Although, we are trying to figure out how we can sleep in our room. We have a cot, bed, and crib, but neither the bed or the cot are that big. The room is not that large for 5 people to be able to sleep in, so this should be an adventure.
We now have the pictures below. The strangest thing about our room is the large window that is between the bedroom and the bathroom that is covered with a white curtain. You will see the view of the bathroom from the bedroom in a picture below. Also, you will see that we did come up with a way for the girls to sleep in the room. We will write again soon.
