The arrival - in which a small-town boy remarks on his first impressions of the big city. Also featuring the fastest ever immigration and emigration from South Korea.
Getting around - my first attempts at navigating the capital by public transportation.
Tiananmen - where I hang out in a really big square, enter the Forbidden City, and stroll around old alley neighborhoods.
More BJ - more of the stuff you love!
Obligatory culture crisis - being a Chinese in China isn't as easy as you think!
Great Wall - hiking the Great Wall around Beijing
Romantic mountain getaway - escaping the big city for a peaceful country weekend
Back in Beijing
