Flight and Arrival

Other then the 3 hour delay at Toronto the flight was good. Took off and headed NNW and flew near Churchill and then Yellowknife before skirting Alaska. Flew south over Siberia to Beijing. Hotel is great. Haven't had the chance to see much of Beijing other then the ride from the airport. It's hard to believe we are here! Tomorrow we fly to Urumqi where Anna is but we don't get to see her until Monday. The picture was taken over northern Canada.


  1. Wow!
    What and adventure and a good cause combined.
    Can't imagine what those first few moments with Anna could be like! but you've been through four kids already.

  2. Mark,I'm sure this is as exciting as skydiving- no, MORE exciting! You are soon meeting your new daughter!!! All the best to you and family on Monday.

  3. Adventure is looking Good so far...nice to see some updates on what's going on. Take care and looking forward to seeing more of your days. Dan.

  4. Mark, it is great to hear everything is going well. You must be so exciting to finally see your beautiful little daughter on Monday. How are Vicki and Ester making out.
    All the best to you, Mona
