I have just arrived in Beijing and met up with my exchange student, Alice. We spent our first day shopping! I have been trying many new foods here (good and bad). The driving here is quite crazy and in my opinion reckless. It is the next day now and Alice and I rode our bikes to school! That was scary because we were riding through the crazy traffic. Their school is very beautiful! We visited many places today including the forbidden city which was so amazing to see!!
