All moved into my 2nd place in a matter of 3 weeks here in Beijing. Currently trying to sublet my first place, but it’s a challenging process because no matter how much I pump it up, you can’t hide the location. My colleagues are getting a kick out of it though. Yuck it up clowns. On a lighter note, I had an 8 year old Chinese girl speak basic Spanish to me which was thoroughly, IMPRESSIVE. Ahhh China, you are full of surprises.
