My agenda in writing this blog is to give a wider audience an understanding of the goings on in China.

For others it is to have an ‘Oh really?’ moment, to learn something new or to be surprised by a new way of seeing something. Learning how to live in a different manner is the essential skill you learn when you choose to live away.

Beijing, the capital of China, wasn’t on my world life map when I was younger. It wasn’t even on my mind to live here when I’d come back to China a second or even third China following a year in Shanghai, detailed in another blog.

Contrary to the above picture, I initially viewed the city as cold, vast, and smoggy. I’m happy that these thoughts have now subsided. I now believe it to be full of stories, communal and niche.

For me being planted here is a natural progression of jobs, mindsets and time. My motivation for staying is the pace, the lessons and the attitude.

So this is how Beijing ticks in my eyes….
