China here we come!!!!!!!!!!!! Well, maybe we're not that zealous........after all, we had to be up at 2:00 a.m. to get our transfer to the airport at 3:00 a.m........India requires that passengers be at the airport three hours ahead of their scheduled flight time and ours was at 7:00 a.m. Our flight took us through Hong Kong's new "island" airport. The airport was built on a man-made island out in the harbour and it is a spectacular facility. We had a short one and one-quarter hour stop in Hong Kong to change planes....just time enough for a coffee and then were on our way again, arriving in Beijing at 8:30 p.m. We met our driver and made our way to the Harmony Hotel. It was dark when we arrived so we were not able to get a "good look" at the city on our way in......that will have to wait for later.
