Getting myself multiple decent dinners and snacks a day is not the only thing I do in Beijing. Since classes will start tomorrow I had the last two weeks to arrange things for uni, get settled in my room, get myself accustomed to the neighbourhood, partying and of course also some sightseeing.
Our first trip – or at least the first one where I didn’t forget my camera – brought us to the Forbidden City. The architectonics were amazing and knowing a bit about the history (for a quick update look here) made it way more interesting to walk around between the humongous buildings. What really made the trip special was the spectacular view – thanks to the clear blue sky – you had from one of the towers outside the walls where you could look all over Beijing.
