Please remain seated and keep your arms and legs inside the ride at all times…

This is it. There are no more sleeps. The whole journey began today. I am in Buffalo right now, we fly out tomorrow but we won’t actually arrive in China till Tuesday. But I board the first plane today and that is enough for me. I am not exactly sure of my thoughts or feelings at this time. We just finished packing some resources in our bags, that was cool.

You know that moment on a roller coaster when the car are climbing the very first hill and all you can hear is the click…click…click. In those few seconds your mind is filled with hope and dread. you start to wonder what you were thinking when you agreed to be strapped into the seat. Well that is the closest to where I am at right now. Even with all the anxiety they cause I love roller coasters…and this is going to be a far greater adventure.

See you on the other side,
Elizabeth
