After a plane switch and a 40 minute delay (filled with lots of Snapchatting and eager chatter), we made it on board and are about to take off.
If you're a Facebook-type, I'm chronicling the trip there for the parents. You can find the page by searching for "PCHs NYC 2015." I'll also post here as I can.
Wish us luck!
P.S. China is not forgotten, I promise. Entries to come on that asap!
