My first impressions are...Huge, everything is really Huge. Beijing is a crazy city, it never sleeps and you could never be alone in one place. I took this picture on a random morning while walking on the way to school. The building you see is one of the most emblematic business buildings in Beijing : The Oriental Plaza. The CKGSB school of Business is located in the Ernst&Young tower.

Some traditional Chinese snacks...I didn't find the courage to try these alive scorpions but that's probably because it was only 10 a.m. Next time we go to the market place, it should be after a bottle of Baiju or even better- a Mow Thie, a local drink similar to our favourite Bulgarian Rakia.

Our first night out was on Monday. We went to the Sanlitun district, an area well known for its variety of international bars and restaurants and a favorite place for some of the "Expats" in Beijing. Christian and I stumbled upon that tiny and cozy bar and shared a BUD. So far, so good, the city is really crazy and enormous. Just to compare, Beijing is 1/5 of the territory of my home country Bulgaria and has almost x4 the Bulgaria's population. The good news is that it's very safe and probably one of the highest security risks here is the traffic.
