China 2012

Website for the PDS trip to China!

First Impressions

First impressions of China came pretty quickly. Everything seemed modern, innovative and clean in the airport. It was quite empty, which was relieving for me. I was exhausted, and I just wanted to sleep. But we had a whole adventure ahead of us. After we found our guides, we boarded the bus and drove through Beijing, which was as spotless as the airport- at first impression. Deeper into the city, it’s different. But the drive from the airport to North Garden Hotel was amazing. Since it was still light, none of the neon signs were glowing, but in my head I could picture a brightly lit city at night, aglow with Chinese characters. – Natalie
