I will describe in this post the way we spent the last twenty-four hours...

At 12am, July 29, 2010, the four of us head to bed after a day of shopping and working in Beijing. We sleep for five hours, after which we wake up, shower, and get ready to head out. Five minutes later, we were in a cab and on our way to the airport.

At the airport, we check in and sit in the waiting area for our flight. Ten minutes after that, we are sitting on a plane, half asleep. Two hours later, we land in Yanji, and five minutes later we are in a cab. Ten minutes after that, we are sitting in the lobby of our hotel, waiting while they finish cleaning our room.

After checking in, we walk to the Yanji train station and get on a bus, twenty minutes after leaving our hotel. After an hour and a half, we switch to a car for a one hour drive out to the border of China, Russia, and North Korea. We are at the border for an hour and then our driver takes us the one hour drive back to Hunchun.

We then sat down for an hour and a half dinner (Russian food). After that, we board a bus for a drive back to Yanji. Back in our hotel, we spend a hour writing posts, watching some TV, and then go to bed.

Now that my listing of the day's travels in done, I can get to the point.

Even though it sounds like an exhausting schedule, I calculated the hours and came up with these results...We spent sixteen out of twenty-four hours either sitting, sleeping, or resting. It was quite a crazy day. I don't think I've ever rested for that long!
