So we're all booked now. Here's the lineup.
We leave this Tuesday the 4th (election day - we've already dropped off our ballots). It's a Northwest flight from Portland to Tokyo and then Tokyo to Beijing. I've flown the Portland to Tokyo flight a few times, but never from the back of the plane. We get in about 9:30 at night on the 5th.
We have a few days to sight see and acclimate on the 6th, 7th and 8th. We then fly on the 9th to Nanning in the province of Guangxi (Audrey's province). We have some paperwork that day/night and then the big day arrives.
The 10th is called Gotcha Day and from that day on we're with Audrey. We spend the next few days in her province, either staying in Nanning or Guilin. We then fly to Guangzhou on the 14th. We'll be there until the 19th doing a combo of sightseeing and paperwork/appts. This is where the US Consulate is and where we process out of. We're heading home the first day we're allowed to (the 19th) and with time zone changes we'll land in Portland around 8:00 AM on the 19th.
That's the scoop, we'll try and post more details as they come. Hope you can follow along on our journey.
