Beijing - Chinese New Year

I arrived into Beijing on the morning of Chinese New Year. It was so cold after being in Thailand for a couple of weeks! I got a taxi straight to ny hostel, I was staying in a tiny capsular room, you couldn't stand up in it! But it was so cosy and when we changed accommodation a few days later we all missed the cosy little hostel. 
Chinese New Year was amazing, so many fireworks going of into all hours of the morning. It was such a great 1st night in China! 
Friday was the start of our orientation week, we got ourselves to the university where we spent the next 6 days together, and met up with the other 50 people that were also on the internship.
The next 6 days consisted of ice breakers, receiving our internship deatails, getting drunk, being hungover and missing teacher training, getting to the top of the Great Wall of China, leaving training early to go to the forbidden city, lakers bar and my 21st!
The few of us that arrived before our internship start date all got on really well and we made friends quickly. It was so sad when we all had to go our separate ways at the end of orientation week, but we are all going to try and visit each other.
