We found out today that our TA (travel acceptance) came in. We also received information about our travel. We are planning to arrive in Beijing a couple of days ahead of our group to see sites that are not on the regular tour. However, we need to meet our group (17 families including us!) in Beijing on July 10. This means we will be in Beijing on my birthday (July 11). . We will go to Michael's province (Shanxi) on July 13 with two other families. I am guessing that we will get Michael on July 14. What a great belated birthday gift! Our consulate appointment is on July 21 in Guangzhou. We can fly home on July 23. We will know our exact dates of travel tomorrow. Hopefully, the next five weeks will fly by!
