Hi Everyone. I am finally leaving for Beijing today. I am so excited. My friend's family found me a one bedroom apartment in Fengtai, Beijng that is near my office. I am hoping with every fibre of my being that it has air conditioning. Otherwise this will be a very hot summer.
I also recently heard from my supervisor that I will be working on the Pro Bono Research Team. I will arrive in Beijing Saturday at 11:30 pm (the time change will not be my friend) and start work that Monday. The first few days will be pretty hectic, but I'll be sure to post within the week.
I have to go catch my flight. Thirteen hours should be plenty of time to review my Chinese.
