Arriving in Beijing

Travel to China was smooth as it could have possibly been—Amtrak to Newark Airport, very smooth, agreeable flight to Beijing. (I could not be more anxious for the Philadelphia to Beijing flight to begin next spring!). Weather fine all the way—actually hot in Beijing – 75 degrees and bright sunny skies! I was met at the airport by Kelly, an intern production assistant, who is a senior in film studies at Shanghai Jiao Tong University. She whisked me off to the four-star Xiyuan Hotel. Something tells me this will not be a hardship assignment!  We depart at 6:45 a.m. for Qingdao (better known to beer-drinkers as Tsingtao) to begin our work in Shandong. Gotta get some sleep—what am I doing awake at 10:45 p.m.? Well, I guess the three hour nap from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. helped. We all know how addictive e-mail is! I learned of the Phillies’s white-knuckle game four victory in Colorado. Go Phils!
