Blending In in Beijing
Beijing, China, Jul. 21 -- After an entire spring quarter preparing and waiting, I am finally here in Beijing, China, for a much-anticipated summer experience. The prospect of being away from my familiar surroundings for two months had not fully dawned on me, until my parents waved goodbye to me at the airport while I approached the security check point. However, my feelings of apprehension were abated by my fascination and curiosity upon arrival in Beijing, as well as the hospitality of students and staff members at the Computer Network Information Center.
