It was a very long flight from Minneapolis to Tokyo. We chased the sun all the way- leaving MSP at 12:45pm Monday and arriving Tokyo at 3pm Tuesday- and never passing thru the night. That always amazes me. It is now 6pm here (3am in Iowa) and we've been awake for about 21 hrs. We'll board our next flight at 6:35p and arrive in Beijing at 11pm, ready for a good night's sleep. On Wed morning, we'll head off to Taiyuan and meet Gideon! Hope to post again soon. If we have trouble getting on to blogspot in China, we'll e-mail our posts and pics to Caitlin and she'll copy them to the blog. To everyone in Iowa-- enjoy the snow!
