My Lunch at the airport in Beijing, China. I wasn't even that hungry, but how could I pass up one of my favorite foods in it's country of origin!


Well I guess my title doesn't sound too exciting.. 27.5 total hours from Houston to Bangkok. 

I left Houston on a little less than 4 hours of sleep, early Monday morning, around 6am.  I flew to Newark, NJ where I was the only person in the state probably wearing shorts and  t-shirt!  haha.  I stuck out of the crowd.  What can I say? It was 70 degrees and sunny the day before I left Houston, plus I'm headed to Bangkok.. It'll be warm.

Then, after a short layover in Newark I boarded my plane headed for Beijing, China.  It was a long flight over Greenland, and the North Pole, and finally down into Beijing, where I sit now.  The flight wouldn't have been too bad (and in fact it was fairly pleasant), but there were babies on everyside of me.  It seemed when one stopped crying, the other started back up.  All in all, it was a good flight.  I am happy to be off the plane, here in an internet cafe, sipping tea and waiting for my flight to Bangkok.

I look forward to finding a place to lay my head and rest!!!  It will be much needed by the time I get to Bangkok!  =)

(More to come soon......)

Sawasdee ka!!! Enjoy Thailand. I had a same experience in Cathay Pacific on the way to Bangkok via Hong Kong. We had 4 or 6 babies in my area - CRYING!!! As you can see, I did't get any decent sleep on my first leg.
