I’m catching a flight from DCA to Newark tomorrow morning and then a direct flight to Beijing, which is going to be a hellish 14-15 hours. I’m sure I’ll be sitting next to several screaming children as well. Arrive in Beijing on Saturday afternoon. On Sunday I plan to shoot AK-47s and other communist firearms and then hike part of the Great Wall (one of the steepest parts, which I’m sure is awesome when you are jet-lagged). If my visa is approved for North Korea I will be there September 8-12 and then back to DC late night on September 13. I have a 10 day supply of cipro and plenty of imperialist Yankee candy, beef jerky, and trail mix. Should be an interesting trip.
