I am traveling to China to meet my new baby sister Elizabeth YunDan. She was born on January 21, 2008. I'm going on November 19th and getting back on December 5th. I'm traveling with my family. I'm going to visit the Great Wall, the Forbidden City and 2008 Olympics.
The trip took 3 hours by plane. It wasn’t as bad as the 13 hour ride in the beginning. When we arrived in Guangzhou, we met our guide, Cornelia. We are staying at the White Swan Hotel and we have two rooms connected by a door. It is the first 5 star hotel in Guangzhou. We went out to a Thai restaurant for dinner where I asked for a banana shake and my waiter brought me a banana. We saw other families with their new babies and we discussed how we were going to get ours tomorrow.
After dinner, my Dad, Tim and I went out for a swim in the outdoor pool. It was cold, but we all got used to it and had some fun. It will be better tomorrow when the sun is out.
