Day 1

I am in Nanjing!

It’s been about 24 hours since I flew in to Nanjing Lukou International Airport yesterday afternoon.  I’m tempted to say that the flight wasn’t really that grueling, but since this afternoon’s outing, I feel completely wiped out. The weather is pretty hot and humid, and the Chinese characters everywhere are making my head spin. (I’ve totally got to cram this week before class starts!)

That said, the city is rather pretty (the traffic is terrifying!) and the Hopkins-Nanjing Center and Nanjing University campuses are gorgeous! The school arranged a tour of both for us today and we got to see most of the important school features in a whirlwind. The old architecture on the Nanda campus was definitely a treat to see.  I’ll most definitely go back to have a closer look at it all.

Look at the Koi Pond!My room overlooks the courtyard of the HNC campus, so I get to wake up every morning to see the koi fish swim circles around the fish pond.

There’s still a lot to see…but it’ll have to wait until later this week. I think it’s time for a nap! (And say hi to Wukong and Bajie ^^)
