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.

... and orient ourselves. It was at this point that I saw what, at the time, felt like my savior. As I stared at the glorious green song above the subway entrance, I felt my fingers defrost. I felt the pain ebb out of my poorly abused feet. I felt the tension drain from my shoulders. I come from a coffee loving town, and I do love my coffee. Starbucks may be bargain basement in Portland, but the one thing they have going for them is consistency, and I ...
... chess, and women dancing in unison- what a comfort, to know that public spaces like this are there for everyone.
Anyway, I found my local bank and eventually purchased a metro card, which sounds easy but in fact only random places sell them. I also indulged in some long-awaited bubble tea and walked around a nearby mall. If you were wondering, the walking cast that I'm sporting (due to stress fracture, no big deal) does indeed draw ...
... planes and invading personal space. This has not changed and it was completely apparent when we boarded the plane. We had bulk head and exit row seats for the flight which is great for such a long flight but people used this as their main thoroughfare for stretching legs, waking and talking with friends. Our feet were stepped on multiple times. Also, the fasten seat belt sign on flights to China is merely ...
