Let's go Fly a Kite

Baseball is to the USA, as kite-flying in Tienanmen is to Beijing. It’s pretty much a national pastime. If you live in Beijing for a year without flying a kite is Tienanmen Square, well, you aren’t getting the full China experience. Seriously.

The weather was PERFECT. This whole week has been unusually nice, but Wednesday evening is one of the prettiest I have seen this year. Sunset over the Chinese capitol building was just right.

I will miss this city. I never thought that Beijing would become home; I have been content living here. But I know that this season of life is coming to an end and I'll be back in school soon. One day, I think I will return to Beijing.
