Grace, Jan and Barb stretching out those longs legs before we sit...

Jan Ying Beer ... just what we needed.


We are scheduled to depart at 13:50 from Vancouver on Air China 992. Our 11 1/2 hour flight crosses the international date line. We land in Beijing at 16:15 local time (1:15 am BC time). China has one time zone and they are 15 hours ahead of BC time.

April 4 – Getting ready for our flight

After a delightful evening of celebrating X birthday and sharing a glass of wine (or two) with the gallivanting gals in our room, we all slept well. Those of us with less desirable seats on the aircraft got up a bit earlier, enjoyed breakfast at IHOP and headed to the airport to get ahead of the crowds. It’s a good thing we did since we got some of the last good seats on the plane.

Since we’re going to be on the plane for 11.5 hrs, some of us decided to go for an hour-long walk around the airport. It was fabulously sunny and felt great to stretch our legs.
