Our last night

 Ni hao!

 Our last night in Beijing was always going to be very special and rather emotional as we didn't know when we'd next be together. Therefore, we wanted it to be as wonderful as possible and to make the most out of each others' company.

 A large group of us chose to spend our evening at Lakers - it had proved to be very popular during our time in Beijing. I ordered chips and some hot chocolate.

 It was lovely - so much so that I drank about three cups of it! Some people played table football, some of us just sat and chatted, but when Gangnam Style came on, we all just had to get up and dance! 

 Here are some photos of Lakers:

Glasses hanging from the ceiling!

 After Lakers some people decided to go out clubbing but as I had to get up early the next day to catch my flight I went back to our student accommodation for my last night's sleep in Beijing.

 As April and I wandered back through the moonlit BNU campus, I reflected on how amazing this experience had been, and I felt sad that it was coming to an end. 

 Mainly, however, I felt very grateful and happy that I had been given this opportunity to travel to the other side of the world and see, hear, taste, experience in every way possible this fascinating country and culture.

 It was a lovely last night of a life-changing three weeks.

 Thanks for reading,
