Greetings from Beijing !
How are you?
I am enjoying Beijing life.
Beijing has urbanized more than before and I feel the passion for the Olympics and the Chinese economic growth.
During this study trip I went to other places in China such as Shanghai, Yunnan, Chengdu, Xian and etc.
Those places are great because the atmosphere is very different from Beijing and I have been enjoying experiencing different places.
These places have a different culture and identity which gives me a new culture shock.
When I arrived in Beijing it was cold, but as the days passed it become warmer and I see flowers blooming in the city.
I recognized again that China is a huge country with ancient history, so spending three months here is just not enough to explore all the sights in China and understand their identity and culture.
How is your town back in McMinnville?
I hope you are having a wonderful day.
I hope I will see you soon
