Although my room was rather small, it was clean and neat. The people at the front desk were all helpful and accommodating.

So a year later and my first demonstration lesson of the year was one enveloped by a certain pretend bravado as my boss, her assistant and my fabulous Chinese coordinator Klaire looked on with constant amusement.

... was in. We sat around in second-hand couches and chairs that the school had provided as furnishings for a while, surfing the web on phones and computers, no one bothering to talk yet. We were all a little worn out from the craziness of the past few days, and the night before had been no exception.
Two days earlier, we had gotten our first taste of Beijing when a group of us had been led into the city by one of the program's language instructors. She'd given us a ...
I arrived in Beijing yesterday afternoon after many, many, many long hours of flying and layovers. I'm so glad to finally be in China!! ^______^ It's really different than what I had imagined, but still sooo awesome :D
The air quality here is so much worse than I thought it would be; I did not know that air could feel so thick all the time and be seen! Perhaps it's ...
