Sonia, our guide, brought kites to fly for a celebration. Very popular idea. Sam says: Best Birthday EVER.

Happy Birthday Sam from a cleaned-up Eric and the Beijing Grand Hyatt. Which we love.

Mom says this is a little more like what she was expecting. We'll try to remember next time.

Glad to see scruffy Rob (he saved his beard for us. Now it's a goatee. I'll get a pic tomorrow.)

Off to explore some street food, but to be honest, they wanted McD's, and they got it.

As you can see, we had a wonderful day. It’s good to be out, it’s good to be here. And hey. we’ve certainly adjusted to the time difference.

Tomorrow, the Great Wall and the plane to Fuzhou.

She looks so happy to be back with her Daddy. The rest of the photos do indeed look like you’ve had a good time in Beijing today!

The Quarantine photos do look much better than the first few ones did. YAY on being back together, and being so close to going to province.
