Where I stayed
As soon as I pulled up to my new hotel, I knew I was in love! I thought that the Desert Springs Villas II was my favorite Marriott, but I was wrong! I only got a small glimps of the lobby, but I can't wait to explore it! Once I was able to set my things down and relax a little, I didn't want to walk around too much. I did add pictures of my room though. I have two beds that really are as comfy as they look, an amazing bathroom, and incrediable views. There is a rediculous amount of out my window so I haven't been able to get amazing pictures yet, but I will. The tall tower that is out my window is the same picture that is on my Facebook timeline picture!
Next on my agenda is to get ready to meet my boss and figure out what I am going to be doing while I am here. Hopefully there will be some time for exploring today as well. There is quite a bit of large tourist attractions that are within walking distance. I am not far from Tianjin's Water Park (not a waterslides and wavepools kind of water park) made of lakes, islands and different things to do. I have heard that one of the islands has a waterslide, but we will see! Also at Tianjin's Water Park, there Tianjin's Eye is which is similar to the London Eye! Tianjin's Eye was build on top of a bridge over the Hai River. Also the TV tower, which is the 10th tallest tower in the world, is within walking distance. It has an observation deck that I am sure will have some incredible views of the city.
On a sidenote, Wikipedia is not a banned website!!! I add links for some cool places!
