May 28, 2015 (Chengdu, Sichuan, China) Nihao! After 14 hours on the 787, we landed uneventfully through the smoggy air over Chengdu. It was evening here and the sun was setting but it looked darker because the skies were overcast. The flight was very smooth, on time, and not over crowded and quite pleasant. Most of us watched movies - I just let my brain relax and listened to lots of music. It started raining shortly after landing, and hopefully that will clear the air somewhat for tomorrow. Our hosts graciously met us at the airport and the Hospital van took us back to the hotel where we met Dr. Wu (Department Chair) and her daughter, Sophia (Harvard PhD student that has facilitated 10 years of trips with us, and Liz Gauger (my current Global Eye Care Fellow) who has been here for six weeks (half way through her final rotation). We had a light dinner Sichuan family style with the big lazy susan table and only 20 different dishes! Now time for some rest! More tomorrow...and I promise I'll start loading pictures too!
