You betta declare yo' stuff, or the beagles will get ya! Never saw them, though. I bet they come out of nowhere.
The FIRST thing that came down baggage claim (below). I guess it's time we got used to sticking out like a sore thumb.
The cab ride from the airport to Dong Wu was about 30-40 minutes and entertaining. Not so much by what we saw (it was dark and hard to see much), but because of the traffic going on over the driv'ers radio. Fun to imagine what was being shouted in Mandarin, but they sure were excitable.
We arrived at Dong Wu with a similar feeling as when were first transported to our hotel in Belize for our honeymoon -- where the heck are we and what are we doing?! But we really do like what we have seen of the hotel so far, and our room is quite comfortable and quaint. The room we had originally booked was occupied, so we actually received an upgrade! Bonus. This where we will be for our first three nights, and then we will relocate to The Howard Plaza before meeting Pierson and Maylin.
