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.

With an hour left to burn, we stop by the store to get some snacks for the plane ride, its 13 hours after all. Unfortunately, the store only has Chinese snacks, and trust me when I say this, Chinese food tastes are nothing like Americans...about the only thing we can find that matches our taste buds are some crackers that end up having a really strong seasoning to them ...
... was where they had ping pong and fencing, I'm told) and head inside. I give my newly purchased gym card to the lady at the front desk, she hands me a locker key and a shower card.
9:19am: After changing in the locker room I'm in the gym working out. At this time of day, the place is basically mine. One of my language professors explained to me earlier that this was more a cultural phenomenon. Chinese young adults, she told me, are pushed by their parents ...
... line of sight and then snap away. If you stay very still they won’t notice you…. One Dutch fellow traveller told us that when he was walking down the street he could sense someone walking just behind him to the left, when he spun around there was this middle-aged woman pretending to walk chummily beside him whilst her husband videoed the whole thing!
Ok that’s plenty for now. So until the next Kung-Fu fighting instalment,
