It has already been three weeks since I arrived in China to study Mandarin Chinese at Xiamen University. These first weeks have been busy with paperwork for my school registration and residence permit, but I finally feel more at ease now that it’s finished!
I’ve made a short compilation of what life has been like so far in Xiamen, including exploring the campus and city, attending classes, and trying out some new food. I hope you enjoy it! Thank you!
