Below are a few details, in pictures! I'm having a little difficulty getting blogger and the netbook to cooperate, so bear with me if the layout is a little lacking!
|Drat, blogger won't let me rotate photos|
We left bright and early and made it around the Beltway in record time -- no traffic! My wonderful friend Katherine and her able assistant got us to Dulles with plenty of time to spare! We checked in quickly, and our luggage wasn't even over weight!
|What I really wanted to capture was the screen that showed how many miles to go, which was some close to 7000! Watching the flight path on the seat-back screens was a major diversion during the 14 hours. We flew north, almost to the pole, and west.|
|Joy is amazing - she can sleep anywere, at the drop of a hat! I don't do as well , especially at sleeping sitting up, so I got some sleep, but not a lot.|
|Flights with food, remember those? We got lunch shortly after take off, a midnight snack, and a second lunch shortly before landing. The second one reminded us that we were almost in China (and was actually pretty tasty).|
|First view of China. Well, I think it was China. It might have been Mongolia. Brown mountains with snow.|
