(Don't worry, I won't completely inundate you with photos, but I hope you look anyway!)
Living on the west coast + time change of +15 hr from PST meant we left Monday morning bright and early and got into Beijing Terminal 3. First impressions: Ugh, it's so hot and muggy; whoaaa this airport is humongous, and I am so exhausted. My one gripe about international travel is the cramped plane rides that must be endured. Fortunately we got to stay at a beautiful hotel - Beijing's Sheraton Doncheng Hotel - which had an amazing buffet every morning. We indulged in lots of food, sights and of course shopping, but here are the highlights of our three days in Beijing:
|Temple of Heaven|
|Peking Duck (in an appropriate dish)|
|Dress: forever21, Bag: lesportsac|
Check back in a couple days for some photos of Xi'an!
