beijing photo diary. part 2.

Street view from Gulou/ Drum Tower | Soft serve at 798 Art District, my latest obsession and cool off snack of choice | Summer Palace | Hiked up to the highest point of the Great Wall at Mutianyu | Grand designs at the National Museum of China | CCTV Building | The best Peking Duck I have ever had (you'd hope so being in Beijing and all) at Da Dong. 

I have less than one week left in Beijing and I can't believe how quickly the time has just flown by. I feel like I've been in this city for three months and barely scratched the surface, but after going through my photos, I've actually accomplished quite a fair amount of exploring. I only have a handful of tourist attractions left to visit and I've already finished all my souvenir shopping. I'm starting to get a little sentimental about leaving my the life I have just gotten used to behind - four hours of class in the mornings, time to actually go to the gym, late nights spent at cafes studying (but really just chatting), convenient public transport, weekends, cheap cafeteria food. This is the life. But I'm not ready to say goodbye just yet. Last weekend in China and I'll be spending it in Shanghai. Ready to conquer another foreign city.
