Arrived in Riga for the Pre-conference

As the vice-group-head of the delegation of the Library Society of China, I arrived in Riga late this evening wth 24 other colleagues.
We met some troubles during the visa checking and waited for about 2 hours in the airport.
We will attend the pre-conference tomorrow.
It's a very tiring day.
We are glad that the Typhoon hadn't arrived before our departure from Shanghai Pudong Airport yesterday at 11:00, and the flight of the Russian Airlines is not late, because the transit time in Moscow was just 1.5 hours.
