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.

I had read online about the section that we weren't allowed to visit and had heard it was stunning and that they weren't many visitors, so when we got to the no entry sign at the end, we carried on past it, to the unrestored section. To start with, there were still lots of visitors, but the numbers soon dropped as we got further from the touristy section and deeper into the overgrown section of the wall. The overgrown section was ...
... with suggestions on how they should run the country. All of the members of the Chinese government today are also members of this organization. We couldn't believe it. After the... well relaxed but rather discomforting conversation with the man we got a tour of the compound. The overall gist? This organization is the backbone of this country's government. Let's just say, it was an experience I don't think I could get anywhere else.
... the Arctic. As a result, I got some pretty sweet photos of Greenland on the way to Beijing.
By the way, the awardees of the fellowship are sent to Washington DC for a few days in April to attend orientation. It was a nice perk for me as I had never been there before. I was going to write a blog entry for my trip to DC, but I'm feeling lazy and incredibly jet-lagged right now. Maybe I'll get around to it someday...
