Where I stayed
I'm getting into the groove of living in a big city, even catching on to the strange traffic laws, but love that there is nature so close. West Lake and the tea fields are my haven. I can navigate pretty well on my two wheels and can almost say the name of my street correct
Settling into my apartment and permanent school on the East side. I keep getting lost and finding myself again. First night, I stood in the rain for 10 minutes waiting for a taxi (finally fed up with being lost) and for it to be the shortest taxi ride in history because I was a block away from my apartment. I get a lot of laughs and odd stares in my neighborhood, but live in my own world assuming we are "laughing together". Plus, now I don't have to feel bad when I point and stare at the ridiculous scrunchies and sequence fashion.
My apartment is a block away from Tiesha River. It's in a really ugly apartment building, but most everyone lives in apartment buildings that look used and abused so I don't feel so bad. Inside, it's two bedrooms, small kitchen, and a TV room with LOADS of pirate DVDs. "China loves to share" said my TEFL teacher when making copies of text books and CDs.
