So many things happened and I totally had no time to blog about it and yeah, we had a small problem with not being able to go online for a few days already. internet suddenly turned off here..
well, once without internet one realizes how much free time there is. we spend the days sleeping and cooking. a few more days without internet and we would have started learning -.-#
a bunch of nerdy looking loud chinese guys just came and fixed it...YAAAY!
yesterday we managed to flood our living room. you don't even want to know how..
ok, now about the last week.
I've met up with my language partner, who is a super nice guy and really wants to help me with chinese. we went to Tian'an men and I finnaly could see this famous Mao poster...Tian'an men is huge, like really HUGE! and very..how do I put it...communistic!
well, the next day we went to see the new national theater.
it is also huge (everything in beijing seems to be huge, srly) and very modern and just simply amazing. afterwards we've seen some Hutongs (less fascinating I have to admit) and Laoshe's house:
Went to some chinese bars and a club. very nice indeed, even though pretty small..well, met Mr. Rugby there, can't complain.though he keeps calling me, I hate talking to chinese on the phone...not understanding nada.
The most beautiful thing so far was the Beijing Oper!
It is very loud, you don't understand much and it gets a bit boring a few times, but the costumes and make up a really worth watching it. especially the second part with acrobatics impressed us all. definitely a must for every tourist.
got a cold these days and had to buy some chinese medicine agains coughs.good thing, they should sell it in germany too.
