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.

... best we were given our noodles and chicken dish. I cannot describe to you how amazing the food was- even better than the dew drop inn and that's saying something!!

So how did they spend the rest of their first day in Beijing? They met their Chinese Buddies and School Principal at their host Beijing School. Played basketball with their Buddies, and ate dinner at the School. And if that wasn't enough to make them fall down in a tired heap, they somehow managed to still find their 'third' wind, and head out to ...
... we saw on the first day. Sadly, the walk to the lake took us past a MacDonalds, where Dan couldnt resist a bit of something, so we were in our second western fast food chain in seven days, again though I refrained, trying to stay true to my pre-trip vows.
It was a pleasant walk round, we even saw a rowing club with what I can only describe as a patio which is ‘slightly better’ than our own back at Bewdley RC. Unfortunately as we got ...
... and people during rush hour times (7-9, 1600-1830), and the honking never ends as the only real rule of the road is the red/green light. Lane lines are truly just a suggestion. The sidewalk doubles as parking spaces, should one need to park their car, van, or mini bus. I cant tell you how easy it was to forget the notion of "pedestrian right of way". Everything is so different. You can almost feel the history that each street holds. But the people have ...
