I've been lax in updating this week - I could say it's due to the 20 hour flight to Beijing and jet lag, but the truth is, I'm reveling in being back in my favorite city and haven't wanted to stay in my hotel room long enough to write. So much has stayed the same since I studied at Tsinghua in 2009, and yet so much has changed as well. Friends have stayed, others left, and many returned. I'm snapping pictures and working up several posts, but to tide Chinaful readers over I thought I'd give a quick peak of what I've been up to.
And mostly, that's eating with friends.
