Yes, we made it to China! And we even have had a few days of blue sky and clear air–though that’s left pretty quickly. Anyways, here are a few words and a few pictures for those of you dying to know what’s been happening!
Beijing is a huge city, around the size of the entire state of Connecticut. And more than 20 million people live here, so as you can imagine, it’s crowded. But it’s actually less different from the US than I had previously thought.
It’s quickly becoming a modern city, with modern highways, cars, subways, technology, and supermarkets. People are everywhere, all very purposeful.
I still don’t know any Chinese, but hopefully I’ll be able to take a class in it this semester and learn a little.
Visiting the tourist attractions will come soon, I hope. The Great Wall is definitely on our list to go see.
Longer post coming soon, hopefully, once we get the internet set up at our apartment (which I will also take pictures of at some point when it’s a little more unpacked).
