From 16th -18th October, I stayed in Beijing for NGO conference. It was a great time to share and to harvest.
I left for Beijing with delight. After a night-long train trip, I got off the train and exchanged business cards with friends I made on the train. They all expressed their willingness to attend our association’s activity and encouraged our program to grow and improve.
It was my first time in Beijing and I was almost lost in the hustle and bustle of the train station. I was thankful to have a bowl of porridge in the rainy cold day of Beijing with my sister and friends who picked me up. As the rain began to ease, I contacted Teacher Yun, who quickly grabbed all materials for the conference and jumped on a bus to Beijing Normal University.
Fortunately, the sun came out as I got off the bus. I asked a warm-hearted uncle for directions to the university, and he told me it would take me over 10 minutes to get there. With a load of heavy materials in my hand, I decided to take a cab.
Later I was in a hotel and finished packing my things. Then I called my friends and waited for them outside of the hotel. Meanwhile the wind blew heavily, and I was almost blown away!
Interesting trip, interesting weather in Beijing, and I hope it will be a wonderful experience in my life.
