We Made It to Beijing... Too Bad We Can't Say the Same for our Luggage
Just a quick post to let you all know that we've made it to Beijing. The trip itself was fairly uneventful- a couple of slight delays but when you're flying for 13+ hours, a delay of one and a half hours seems nominal! Our friend Sandra, who I know from my Harvard days, is a wonderful and gracious host. We're staying in her lovely apartment and she has been kind enough to lend us clothes UNTIL OUR LUGGAGE ARRIVES. Yes, that's right, we are sans baggage for the day. We've been reassured by Air China that our luggage will arrive on a flight from JFK tonight. We're hoping for the best, since we leave tomorrow morning at 7:45 AM for Mongolia. Good thing I brought all my research essentials (computer, digital voice recorder, paperwork) in my carry-on bag, I guess!
