We now have a visa stamp in our passports for Tokyo!!  Adventure woman did not want to come on this trip--but did.
We had a medical emergency on board too (not us personally), thought we would have to land in Alaska.
And after only 1.5 hour asleep, a flight attendant woke up Waid to see if he was buckled--that was the end of sleep on the plane.
I had a Christian t-shirt on, so I couldn't slap her;)
Our flight to Beijing was cancelled due to weather.  Delta got us a hotel (our expense), and rescheduled us with another airline.  
They had to re-open immigration for us (only Americans), and we did get 2 great personal assistants to walk us thru everything.
After 5 hours sleep, now we will try again. 
5th time to China, I guess we will never get to see the great wall.=(--that's what we were supposed to be doing this morning.
Please pray the rest of our trip is VERY uneventful.


  1. Oh Janet!!! Gracious! Praying for NO more eventful things to happen! The same thing happened to our friends that we met in Ch*na. Delta ended up giving them a bunch of sky miles for a free flight to anywhere in the continental US...they need to do the same for you guys! :-)

  4. OMW!!! That is so not right! No Great wall for you! I am so glad you had your christian shirt on...well, not really I would have liked to hear the story of you beating someone up on the plane..hee hee! So sry things haven't been going smooth. Hopefully the rest of the trip will.

  5. Praying for you guys! We too have a visa stamp from Tokyo! We had to spend one night there on our first trip to China, but the airline paid for the hotel. We haven't seen the Great Wall either. Some day...
