If you told me a year ago that I would be sitting in my apartment in Beijing, China writing a blog post about my life here, I would have never believed you. It was truly a huge leap of curiosity and adventure to have the courage to move here. It has only been 3 days and I can already tell it is one of the best decisions I have made to date. China is truly an overwhelming place when you first arrive. It is a massive country with so many people. The impact of this is only truly seen when you witness it in real life. My first impression of China has been great. It is a completely different world than I am used to coming from the United States, however it has a lot to offer. So far I can say that traffic and the crowdedness of Beijing are the most hectic aspects of the city. However, the amazing sights to see and beautiful buildings make up for it!
