We're here and everything is in Chinese!

   It is a little confusing but we are surviving. After our long flights we made it to our luxurious hotel complete with amazing breakfasts, great beds, clean toilets, and clean showers with bath robes. This is quick since my hour is almost up but just wanted to post something. We conquered the great wall in the beautiful sun today and it felt great. We will post pictures soon. It is pretty amazing here and I feel lucky to be able to make this trip. Everyone is pretty cool too. This blog thing is cool, even though it still confuses me but Allison assures me that I am posting this correctly.
    I am pretty ready to go to sleep after I drug myself up with sleeping pills. After the amazing great wall and the dissapointing ming tombs I am ready for lots of walking in the forbidden city tomorrow, wherever it is. I am also every excited to shop since I didn't bring very many clothes. Well until next time. Farewell, I would say it in chinese but I don't know any.
