Our first picture from China

Here we are in front of the Tian A'Men Gate to the Forbidden City in Beijing China. Photo taken at 9:00 am June 10, 2007 local time. We were standing at one end of Tina A'Men Square when the photo was taken. It's impossible to understand the perspective in the picture but the gate in the background must be between 1/4 and 1/2 mile away.

Hey, you guys look pretty good! Mary Louise, I am so glad to hear that you were nervous, but did OK. I've never been on an airplane and I am feeling a little antsy about the whole thing. I'll just keep thinking: Mary Louise did it and so can I!! Love, Monica

What a wonderful picturs!! We are so happy you have made it literally to the "other side" to be united with your son!!
Isn't the history absolutely incredible?!? You are in such awe after only seeing these pics in books. Enjoy and absorb all you can.
Have you tried the local food yet? I am so anxious to hear about that.
Mary Louise - I am so proud of you - see YOU did it!
Keep sending those emails I am living and breathing just to hear from you!

Much love!
