I was going to see Peking U and Tsinghua U. when in Beijing since they're so close to the summer palace, but ran short on time. Any girls, former or attending hit me up. I'd be fun talking for sure. Now, back home in So. California, but plan on returning this spring or fall. I was in Jinan for 2 weeks and people were warm and friendly. Most were just curious about a foreigner and some even wanted thier pic taken with me, lol....Had a great time there...
