Day 1|Thursday Today we woke up an had to meet at the airport by 8:30. We then checked in, got our passports and went through customs and waited to board our plane. We had two flights today with Eastern China Airlines, one was from Melbourne to Shanghai and then Shanghai to Beijing. The first flight took about 10 hours and the second one about 2. Beijing was quite foggy. We then went to our hotel which was quite nice. Hotel: Royal Pheonix Hotel ...

Interesting first day in China. Still a little jet-lagged, some of us woke up at 11:30 AM Beijing time while others (Dad) woke up at 7:30 AM, and then fell asleep when the rest of us woke up. Internet is barely accessible here, and when it is, it's sketchy. It's weird not to be able to access it when I need it. Twitter, Facebook, and Google are all permanently blocked by the Chinese government, so even when we do have Internet, we ...
