After our 13 hour flight we arrived in Beijing! Our tour guide Louise, a Xi'an native and university student, met us when we landed and gave us an introduction to this city of 22 million people. She walks about 20,000 steps a day so we may have our work cut out for us these next few days!
We got settled into our first hotel and ventured out for some 'baozi', or steamed buns, to enjoy in the courtyard. It was a perfect way to end our first evening in China!
