We made it!
We made it safely to Beijing yesterday, but were too exhausted to post (see Mike's crashed picture). We had a 7:30 am flight this morning to Shenyang, which didn't go as smoothly as yesterday's travels. One person did not have a seat, so he had to wait for the next flight. Fortunately it was one of our Chinese team members, so he was okay traveling alone. We also lost a bag along the way, but it has since been recovered.
We spent the afternoon shopping in Shenyang before our 4+ hour bus ride to Chaoyang. We shopped for the orphanage at the Walmart Super Center, which is always an interesting experience. As you can see from the photos, we also shopped at a couple stores that we were pleasantly surprised to find.
Once again we are exhausted, so we need to get some sleep. Tomorrow is our first day at the orphanage, and tie-dye is on the agenda. That is, if the rain stops long enough....
