Flew with Hainan Airlines (a Chinese outfit). Seated by an emergency exit on the plane. On purpose? Had to be able to understand the instructions in Chinese or English. I could!!! So could the bloke on the other side of the aisle – he was British too. So I went all the way across Russia without meeting a single westerner, then am seated next …
Thoroughly enjoyed the great sleeping/showering arrangement, but up early as full program in my honour. Breakfast with a stressed Ming (lots of not so familiar food – buffet, so easy to find something I liked. Orientation hour with a Chinese teacher, Yan Di, from Beijing (Ming present), and after the prescribed hour, even though we were far …
... we went over some grammar I learned today.

TravelPod Member ReviewsThe Ministry of Education Hotel Beijing
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.
