Lovely place and communal areas, room itself was very cramped but good for money. Room was very dark though as was no main light only individual bed lamps. Wifi in communal area was excellent.

... breaking things. At the end we got to take pictures with them. Out in the courtyard, some of our SAS students had picked up a game of basketball with the Kong Fu school students. They were not versing each other. The teams were mixed which I thought was really neat.

We leave Beijing on Thursday night, and until then have another 2 guest lecturers who I am looking forward to. Beijing has definitely been fun so far but certainly is rough around the edges, and I cannot wait to return to Shanghai in a couple ...
... families without worrying if the other one needs it. I bought a wifi box, and set it up, but that still doesn't seem to work. I'll keep playing with it and bugging dad, and I'm sure we'll work it out one of these days. Google also has moved out of China, so although it is still mostly accessible, sometimes it is quite slow, or the searches won't work. Moreover, sites like Youtube, Twitter and Facebook are all difficult to access. Chatting with ...
