Our initial pictures

The kids in the airport (excited and ready to go)

Rui, our guide, talking to us on our bus ride from the airport to the hotel. On the bus were four Great Wall families - us, Don and Linda, Julie and her mother (from Atlanta), and Pam and Steve (from Charlotte)

The entry gate to Beijing. In the blue box is the chinese symbol for Beijing. Beijing means north capital.

The view from our hotel room at 6:00am - Notice the people riding bikes. Rui told us there are 14 million people in Beijing, and 9 million bikes.

Looking out our hotel window at another building. I don't know if you can see the haze that covers the city, but it's amazing how smoggy everything is.

BTW, my camera came back yesterday. It works beautifully! Thank you SO much for blogging about your camera troubles or else I never would have known about the free repair thing for CCD issue.
