First Impressions of the Middle Kingdom

Pinch me. Seriously just pinch me. Am I really here? Am I really living here? 

Oh yes. I really am here. And oh yes, I really am living here. As of two days ago, China is officially my ‘new home’. This decision surprised me far more than it did the people around me. To them it was just another country in a long list of countries I had either visited or lived. 

But to me it was China. 


So far it all feels surreal and not quite real. I’m not even sure what to say because it still hasn’t sunk in that I’m here. 

I’ll write more once I’ve gathered my thoughts, processed the big decision I made, as well as actually reconciled the fact that China is now my new home. 

Who would have thought? The Middle Kingdom itself.
