Arrived safely at Beijing, it takes nearly 22 hours to travel the 5000 miles to China.
Our Chinese hosts took us to the Olympic stadium on Sunday.
On Monday Mr Hackett visited Le Hu High School and watched the flag raising ceremony. I joined in with a Chinese lesson too. The children work very hard in China - lessons start at 7.30am and finish at 5pm!!
After our first school visit we went to the Great Wall of China, which as you can see is very steep and runs for 8000km, although Mr Hackett didn't go that far in the hour he had!
In the evening we were treated to a show at a famous tea house. I have found out the Chinese love their tea!
