... are plenty of places in Burnley that we wouldn't like to be on in an unlit backstreet in the dark, but here in one of the biggest cities in the world we felt safe as houses as people milled/cycled about and the shops and restaurants stayed open 24 hours.
... it,k they played a video of the pictures of us this semester. There was so many pictures of Robb posing with Chinese people. Chinese people love taking pictures of black people. If you are black and coming to China, expect to be treated as an exotic item.
After that, we went to our classroom building building to present flowers to our professors. They were great educators. I learned so much from them.
We chilled for a bit and took pictures ...

Finding the transfer in Beijing will be fun. One terminal will probably be the size of... Oh, I don‘t know, Zurich? If I get lucky maybe only the inner city?

My third grievance is the sheer size of the city. I don't know ...

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.
