I’ve been here for two days only and even if I know you can’t judge the whole country by its capital I already have some thoughts about China. It’s not a love at first sight. Actually it’s not love at all but it’s definitely interesting here and I’m glad I’ve decided to come.
So if I have to sum up China with only one word it’s be loud. Gosh, it’s insane here! The languages sounds like it’s barking, or arguing and people speak really loud here. Add that to crowds you’re always surrounded and it can drive you crazy at some point. It’s especially bad when you visit tourist attractions as there are always packed with tours of Chinese people and the guide always uses a loudspeaker… it’s madness!
Then it’s so busy and packed with people. But that’s no surprise in one of the biggest cities of the world. And I was expecting that, it just annoys me a little bit that always someone comes into my picture ;) Even when I was at Tiananmen at 8 in the morning yesterday there were already crowds there!
Chinese are a really curious nation. I don’t know if they don’t see that many foreigners or what but they just stare at you, like you’re another tourist attraction. Those braver come to take a picture with me but usually they just take the picture of me secretly and when I notice they just run away, giggling. Or they It really amuses me!
Oh, and people here don’t walk. They run around! No matter where, no matter young or old, they just keep running. I don’t really understand where or what for but they do that. Also, when they visit tourist attractions, they just blindly follow their guide. In the Forbidden City, in the huge area they just followed one trail and you can take just few steps right or left to be away from them…
The country is also overload with cuteness! Seriously, everything here needs to be cute – food, clothes, stationery, accessories, useless things… it’s everywhere and I love it!

So far my stay here goes really smoothly and I truly hope it’ll stay like that as I was pretty afraid of that. It’s true English isn’t much spoken but as long as you have a good map and a sense of orientation you’ll be fine!
Now I’m looking forward for more days in China, it’s such an interesting place!
