Weekend Trip

  • A weekend in Shanghai

    IMG 0242If I could pick any city in the world to live in right now, it’d be Beijing. I suppose that’s why I’m here, but my path through American high school means I’m limited to staying for the summer. I was here last year, and coming back to Beijing seemed like an obvious choice, but in the interest of expanding my understanding of China I planned to leave the capital to volunteer in Anhui province for some time as well. Other than that I had no plans to leave Beijing, but surprises happen all the time in China. On CSA's Great Wall Camping trip I made a new friend, Ben, a German living in Shanghai for the summer. And so a week later my friend, Aneesa, and I are boarding the high speed train on the way to figure out what Shanghai is all about. 

     

     

  • From Nanjing With Love

    lolAnother successfully completed CSA trip means its time for another blog by yours truly.

     The weekend of the 23rd / 24th of May saw myself and eleven other able bodied 留学生 (international students) nip down to the literal opposite of Beijing (Northern Capital) known to the rest of us by the name Nanjing (Southern Capital).

    Having visited during the summer of 2014, I was determined to get a CSA trip to this wonderful and completely underrated city often overlooked by its more popular neighbours in the form of Shanghai, Suzhou and Hangzhou.

     

    Our trip began with a slight hitch at Wu Dao Kou Subway Station as we battled to group everyone together amongst the rush hour crowds of the Beijing Subway. An hour later though, much to my relief, we all found ourselves outside Beijing Station ready to swap the hustle and bustle of Beijing for the clean air and tranquility of its southern counterpart.
