The Great Wall

The flight to Beijing seemed really long. I can't imagine the 13.5 hour one next week!


Today we went to the Great wall, the Pearl Factory, the Cloisonne Factory and the Jade museum. I never realized how expensive real jade is!

Tomorrow we have the medical exam in the morning, then a tea house then in the evening we are going to the Beijing Circus.



Also, I just found out that I am an aunt!! My brother and his girlfriend just had their first child - a boy, to be named Hugo Kaleb. Congratulations to them - pictures soon!!!


Here are some of our pictures from the last 2 days:
