My brother and his family left early (4:30am) this morning for the airport to head back to China. They will be there for another year, before we see them (and more importantly, Samantha). Unless, of course I can convince DH to take a trip out there.
They will be going to several Olympic events while they are in Beijing for the next week before heading off to Siping (their home city). I am quite jealous, but I have an ample supply of official Olympic gear from Beijing. Its not the same, but it will have to do.
Here is a picture of their tickets. They are off to handball, gold medal games for beach volleyball, some track and field events, and closing ceremonies.
