Today was my first day in Beijing. I need to remind myself that first days are always slow and not much happens and I need to be ok with that. In the morning, I tried to call my contacts and made some plans, and some other plans got rescheduled. This is what happened the first days I was in Shanghai.
What I’m doing differently here is that I am not doing any walking tours in Beijing, though I think maybe I should sign up for something. It’s a good way of orienting myself into a new city.
