Today is last minute errands, final things to see in Beijing, and suitcase packing. For some, there will probably be final fittings with the tailor, if multiple alterations were required.
We check out of the hotel at noon. Our group flight out of China to Newark is at 3:45 pm. We leave late Monday afternoon, fly all day, and arrive home in Kansas City on Monday evening, recapturing the day we lost when we last crossed the International dateline.
I look forward to seeing my family — and to sleeping in my own bed tonight!
