We received our appointment with the consulate for July 9th at 8:30am. That means we need to be in Nanchang on June 25. Our plans are to fly on June 21st from DFW to Chicago, then to Beijing. That flight doesn't get into Beijing until 11:30pm on the 22nd (local Beijing time).
We plan to stay there until Sunday the 24th when we will catch a China Air flight to Nanchang. Most likely we will get Natalie the next day.
