Day 1 in China - This is just a quick update with more to come later -- Tara and Dirk arrived in China today (middle of the night Wed morning for all of us). They flew over the North Pole and were able to get some pictures so hopefully we'll get to see those soon! They were having some technical difficulties with their internet connection in the room and sent the message from the business center of the hotel so hopefully they will be able to get that resolved and get on with keeping us updated and entertained.
Keep checking back for updates as I will post as I get messages and hopefully pictures. And by the way, if you want to send a message to them there is a Comments link at the end of each posting that will allow you to leave a comment and an email will be sent to them as well -- don't forget to leave your name so they know who sent the message.
