Provided by the Ministry of Education as I am on a teacher exchange program, so not chosen myself. Location is brilliant as it is right next to AFS's offices (part of the MOE), and just along from Tiananmen Square.
The staff are really helpful when I have a couple of issues. It's a bitold-fashioned decor wise, but facilities are fine, with broadband, and most importantly a good, big, hard, bed and a good, hot shower.

People bought a single yellow flower and bowed and placed it in front of a statue of Mao to show their respects ...
... Beijing taxi experience so far wasn’t a positive one.
Leaving the Temple of Heaven I took a wrong exit but carried
on walking in the hope of finding a subway station. Literally four exhausted
hours later in some distant suburb populated by increasingly rural looking
peasants I gave up and flagged down a cab giving the name of the nearest subway
station to my hostel.
“Dongsu” the driver indicated ...
... Alright, so I have been very bad about updating this…and
yes, I will regret it in the future but in the present moment I have been so
busy that I don’t care. I have been all
over the place---all around Beijing, to Shanghai and back. This entry is ...
... but much larger. Mariana Leon liked it more than the Forbidden City. There are three large halls, one with three Buddhas which represent the past, the present and the future. I wonder if Dickens visited this temple during Christmas and came up with a Christmas Carol here! In the second hall, there is a pretty big Buddha about 18 feet tall to which people pray and light incense. (Well they actually pray and light incense all around the temple!) The last hall ...
