I will be going to China as an exchange student for 10 months. China wasn't my original choice, New Zealand was, but since I had chosen Chinese as my optional subject and a friend of mine was going to China I chose China. China is also a very different country. Everything is probably different from how it is in Denmark, the people, culture and food. I would really like to know about life in China. Stig, the person from my class who is also going to china, and I have become very close and are traveling together. He has been placed in a city called Shenzhen right besides Hong Kong, which is in the south of China, so it will be very hot at both daytime and nighttime. I have been placed in Beijing, the capital of China. There are about 22 million citizens in Beijing, compared to 5 million people in all of Denmark. I hope to experience a lot of the things that Beijing and China have to offer. Especially the Chinese New Year and I'm really looking forward to meeting my host family and getting to know them.
Take care :)
