I traveled solo yesterday with 2 of the kids from guangzhou to beijing. It was a pretty average trip. We had planned to stay one night (to greet our new guide) and then head to kunming but i couldn't get a late night flight so that one night turned into two.
Matt flew from Guangzhou to Kunming with the other two kiddos. I chatted with him briefly today and I didn't get all the details but his flight sounded more traumatic then mine. :-)
We met our new guide and are headed to kunming in the morning. It's already 430 pm and we leave on a 630 am flight so no time for sightseeing. The kids missed naps and are starving so we are operating on basic necessaries only. That is ok - i imagine we will be back in beijing at some point and we can sight see then. :-)
Kunming is known as the city of eternal spring but i heard it snowed there yesterday! Most buildings don't have central heat (including the one we are staying at) but I am assured by a friend the space heaters are enough! I guess a little unexpected Christmas snow may be nice.
Next post from kunming!
