The flight leaves from Dulles later this afternoon, and 14 hours later, my wife and I will be plopped down in China by the time you wake up for breakfast and work on Monday morning.
So much to see, so little time …
We’ll do all that Beijing allows us to do: see the famous Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City, the people of China!
We’ll be spending four days with Cal Ripken Jr. and B.J. Surhoff, who are doing baseball clinics and meeting dignitaries throughout China as a special diplomatic envoy from the U.S. government.
My wife and I will depart from Cal’s journey on Day 5 and head to Hong Kong and Tokyo to sightsee and be ugly American tourists.
Our trip will end next Monday night as we watch the Ravens-Steelers game from Pittsburgh somewhere in downtown Tokyo with our Ravens jerseys on.
We’ll also have the option of finding the Pats-Colts matchup next week at 4 a.m. from somewhere in Japan!
So, please follow my blog every day as we’ll be adding some pictures and some stories from Asia with Cal and company.
I also promise to keep an eye on Rick Maese from The Sun and make sure he gets back safely as well.
We will be shooting gobs of footage for wnsTV along the way, so stay tuned for that.
In the meantime, I hope the Ravens get well and shock me on that barstool in Tokyo next Tuesday morning!
Off to the friendly skies …
And my first trip to Asia!
This is gonna be GOOD!!!
