3 February -- "It Is Indeed a Great Wall"

Yes, the immortal words of President Nixon came to mind as we scaled the Great Wall today (well, about 1/2 a kilometer of the Great Wall).

It is an awesome sight; it's a bit touristy, but you have to go see it if you're in China!

We did a little shopping and then spent the afternoon at the Summer Palace. It's a beautiful area just outside of Beijing.

There are about 80 people staying in the same hotel who are part of a large adoption agency (including moms and dads to be, siblings, grandparents, etc). We also saw a large group at the Summer Palace with their new children.

We leave for Kunming tomorrow, and there's even a chance we'll receive Melissa! We can't wait!

    Ooh! This is fun -- I can't wait for the next update. I hope you got a lot of the cheesy souvenirs at the bottom of the Wall. It's nice to know that however old, dignified, and majestic a place is, there's a million people at the bottom running behind you screaming "look, look one dolla, one dolla".

    Hope you get to meet her soon.
