去年生意亏大方了，幸好还有房产顶着，老房客也真给劲，房子修完后一下子又搬回来了！所以报完税之后一身轻松，回母校拍了樱花，挖，好漂亮！ （好像没发表过哦）然后马上去 ASA Tour 旅行社定了机票，西雅图 - 北京来回$750USD，还行吧。
The following is my personal experience taking Hainan Airline to Beijing, China from Seattle at Spring 2009.
Hainan Airlines check-in counter. Very fast service. R/T $750, not too bad. Purchased from ASA Tour a very reliable Seattle based travel agency.
1600 Lind Ave. SW. Suite 210 Renton, WA 98055 (425) 264-1236 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
美安部 (Homeland Security) 的老头在认真地用放大镜看你的护照上的照片。
（趁人家没注意，啪）A Homeland Security personal carefully check your Passport at Seatac Airport. 后面是安检，过了这关之后，您就出美国了。这个是部换外币的车子。这位大姐说她最怕晃悠了。（那车子也没坐在地上...）少于$450要收手续费滴
，所以不如等到到中国再说。Don't worry, you can exchange money easily when you get to Beijing Airport.下去坐小地铁到南岛 (South Terminal) 候机楼。
You then take subway to the south terminal.
Remember, when you go to China, bring toilet paper with you anywhere you go !!! because I said so.
Most passengers were Chinese. 49 people boarded on 200-seat Airbus 330-200 on this flight. We departed Seatac at 2pm.
第二天的16：30到了北京机场，为了省事，就干脆把飞机停在过夜的机窝了 - 没有停靠大厅。
再上摆渡车去大厅。After 11 hours in the air (non-stop), we landed at Beijing Capital Airport at 4:30pm (add one day). Perhaps because there aren't enough people on this flight, Hainan decided to park the aircraft at the over night parking lot. Everyone had to ride the shuttle bus the #2 terminal. 首都机场一个把门的坐那儿看他的报纸，也不说起来把另一扇门打开，所以的乘客，拎着大包小包的都要挤过50cm 宽的门。步行电梯也不开，大家只好拎着大包小包的往上走。
After got off the shuttle bus, everyone had to carry his/her carry-on luggage into the building (I guess why it is called carry on). Escalator is not in service, the door guard didn't not bother to get up to open the French door, so everyone had to squeeze through 2' wide door way. I guess you pay what you get.
排队过边界。应该排那一队呢？The boarder control. The left lane is for Chinese Citizen, the right side lane is for foreigner. Of course, there are many more lanes. 我忘记说出海关了吗？什么呀，海南空服说一定要认真填写。我说我又不把相机留下，有什么好报的？她说那你也要报。我想她不知道她在说什么。结果到了最后一关，海关人根本就没接审报单！ On the airplane, Hainan flight attendants handed out a Custom Declarer Form. I asked one of the flight attendants,I am a foreigner, although I have worth more than ￥5,000 RMB value of camera gears but I do not intend to leave those camera gears behind, do I still need to declar? She said:yes. Actually, she was wrong.
Nonetheless, the Custom people didn't even bother to collect the form. Now you are on China soil, congratulations.
行李出的很快。显示屏也是LCD的。行李车免费滴，Yes!The luggage came out fairly quickly. The luggage cart is free to use (at outbound as well, not like Port of Seattle, so much hassle) 以前出关之前就可以买到手机冲值卡，现在要出来到大厅，被移动给垄断了。
After you got out the Custom door entering the lobby, you can buy cell phone service recharge card (if you have a China cell phone or SIM chip)or buy prepaid IP phone card which you can use at any public phone booth. Yes, there are many money exchange booth. The service people all can speak English.
老土我跟大家说再见！千万不要跟五个以上MM同时交谈！If you have nobody come down to pick you up, you have option to take a taxi which is about $25, or you can take lightrail at terminal #1 or #2 building, it costs $4, if you don't have the check-in luaggages. The third option is to take airport to Beijing City connection bus. There are 5 lines. The ticket is only $2.50. However, be prepared to carry your luggage onto the bus and you must know where you are going because you may need call a taxi after get off the bus.
Have fun in China !
后记：沿路上一个很有挑战性的事就是拍这些片子。光线没有选择，场景也无法安排，有些地方人家也不希望被拍到。所以要当机立断。感谢我的忠诚伙伴：泥坑地三百 + 10-20，50 f1.8，18-200VR，105百微。
