Framme i Kina!

Now i've finally reached Chinese soil again! Landed in Beijing 2 days ago and it's as cold as Finland...Hyan picked me up at the airport and I'm staying at their place for a few days until i get my own apartment here. Been exploring the town a little the last few days alone. Just a ipod in my pocket and a buss card in my hand...A finnish hobo lost in a huge city. Everything is like before, it's pretty hard to get by without knowing chinese...english isn't to be expected from everyone, especially not the taxi drivers who takes you to places...i always have a chinese address written up on a paper or call a friend to get from place A to place B. Time to start studying Chinese soon...

Next week i have an incoming Around Asia trip scheduled, warm beaches and city sightseeing's in the south coming up!

Time is runing out...

Only 2 weeks to go. Found an internet site which have nice apartments in the area my school is gonna be located. Got some nice pictures too, hopefully i could
"seal-the-deal" ASAP and have a roof over my head when i arrive in Beijing! Now i know how the Orion Pie "It's now" cookies feel!
