The Journey Starts

Our journey has begun. We left Oklahoma Christian University at 5:45am on August, 27 2004. Arrived at Will Rogers Airport and that is where John Osborne and Nancy Moran (Travel Agent) met up with all of us and helped us get through the ticket counter. 

Then we left for Salt Lake City where we would connect with our next flight to Los Angles. Our Final flight will be from LA to Narita, Japan. Once we landed in Narita, we went through customs just fine, but baggage claim was another thing. Chris Verner’s Luggage got misplaced in between Narita and Oklahoma. Total amount of flying on the first day of travel is 6881 miles!

Arrive in Beijing:

We left Narita around 6 pm- barely missing a Typhoon. We had a one hour delay in Narita due to the storm and the number of aircraft landing.

This flight was about 3 and half hours long and a late flight. We got to Beijing around 10 that night and went through customs just fine. Some people from Capital Normal University picked us up and we got to the campus around 11:00.

Tiananmen Square & Forbidden City:

Tuesday we went to see the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square. While at the square it was the first encounter for all of us with the street vendors. Some of us were being followed around by these vendors as they were yelling all around for us to buy there things. The Forbidden City is an awesome place with great beauty and heritage. Just realizing that we were walking through so much history was an awesome experience.
