January 25, 1999
Today I was on the plane and in airports for 24 hours straight. First,
I went to Dulles airport in Washington DC to get on a 14 and a half-hour
flight to Tokyo. That took a long time! In the Tokyo airport, we had
a two and a half-hour layover. From Tokyo airport we had a three-hour
flight to Dalian, China. After a turbulent takeoff, I started feeling
really awful and motion-sick, but I felt better after about an hour.
In Dalian we had a 45-minute layover to go through customs. From there
we took a one-hour flight to Beijing. Then, on our last leg of the journey,
we took a 55-minute bus ride to our hotel. I slept for three hours on
the flight to Tokyo, and all the way to Dalian, Beijing, and the hotel.
