Captain Jeff here from the heart of red China. We arrived at 17:00 last night at Beijing International and barely made it through the security at the airport. The people here have been quite friendly addressing me as "Hello Captain" "Ni-hao capt." or "Hi there Mr. Captain." We had a hearty of meal of dumplings, rice and some spicy fungus. After 2 large Yangjing beers I told the boys to "give 'er a rest" so they'd be frosty for the Hutong Bike Relay the next morning. On our way back to our sleeping quarters we set out to make friends with the locals. Always good to make a few contacts. You never know when you'll need valuable intel down the road.
