Long time no update, I’m currently packing my things since I’ll be going back to France for winter break next Monday. The first semester ended and the dorms are progressively emptying themselves, everyone is going back home or travelling. I went shopping for gifts to give friends and family, I did get a few things but I guess that the person to whom I got the most things was… myself. Yeah, I’m a bit shameless. Anyway, if I don’t find something for some people now, I’ll just get them before I leave Beijing for good.
The smog made its come back a few days ago and it was pretty gross looking. The exceptionnal good weather we had during APEC is now long forgotten, it was too good to last anyway. Campus internet is crappy as ever and I have a ton of homework I didn’t even start doing, uhh life hasn’t been easy recently.
We managed to join a Chinese cooking course with some of my friends in October via a cultural association on campus and last Saturday was the last lesson of the course. This course was very fun to attend and felt really gratifying! During each lesson, we experimented a different style of Chinese cuisine by making two famous dishes of that style then we got to eat the food we made afterwards. Nothing better than free lunch! Especially when you made it yourself, right?
