So glad you made it! I recognize Wang Fu Jiang Street -- what a fun time we had there almost a year ago! I'm guessing you're at the WFJ Grand, where my hubby filled the dining room with smoke after he burned a piece of toast in the toaster (too funny!).

Have a wonderful time in Beijing and a safe flight to Nanchang. It was horribly hot there in June last year, I hope it's a little bit cooler for you now!
