Life in China – Guest Post

Three years in China

DSC_0586_2

Firstly thank you very much Mohamad for inviting me as a guest on your wonderful blog; very kind of you.

I lived in Beijing for three years and absolutely loved it.  I worked during the week and during the weekends and other time off I took advantage of this wonderful opportunity and travelled around China.

I travelled as far west as Xinjiang, as far south as Yunnan, Guangxi and Guangdong, as far north as Heilongjiang and also as far east as Shanghai and Zhejiang.

China is such a diverse and fabulous country.  I really loved it.  So to ask me which part of China or which province I loved the most would be a good question but not one I could answer as I genuinely loved all of China.

I loved the people – I loved interacting with them; the elderly and the young and really enjoyed their surprise when they found out I could speak some Chinese.

I also really enjoyed travelling to areas that are not often travelled by foreigners like Qinghai and Ningxia.

And…of course there is the food.  Eggplant is the vegetable I loved the most, along with tofu, potatoes and the green beans.

As for seasons, I loved spring and autumn and then winter but summer heat was a killer and not to my liking.

All in all a country I really do love and miss – until 2018 when I will return for a trip to Beijing, Jilin and Inner Mongolia!!
