I think even if I tried, I would not have a "quiet" life or what we have been calling normal, with hardly any jitters, with a more or less defined routine ... It seems that this is not with me, with my current life and I do not want it to be either, or at least not for now.

This story begins after my return from Hong Kong, where my passion for new horizons was awakened again, as it was in a lethargy day by day Shanghai. Lately the weeks were eternal, the days and sometimes even the hours. That's why I decided that my time in Shanghai was coming to an end. I needed something new, different, to motivate me again. The solution: Beijing . I had spent several weeks talking to my friend Sami, with whom I worked briefly in the translation company, and who went back to Beijing because, according to him, I could not stand the coldness of Shanghai. He had contacts who offered me a job as a teacher in a kindergarten to teach English, with a good salary, visa and also with accommodation. So I caught a train on a Tuesday morning and I stood there where they say it is the Chinese capital to try to take another step in my adventure.

On Monday morning I finished packing things and went to the Hongqiao railway station to finally move to what was to be my new city. But as I said before, my life is not what is said "normal", so between my face and the Chinese that there is no one who understands, when I went to buy the ticket at the box office tells me the girl: "Today only first class, 933 yuan. " My face had to be a movie because the girl asked me to forgive.

So there I was, at the station, with all my things in a suitcase and no possibility of returning to the flat, and the keys. So I got in touch with my friend Vivian, who lives in Beijing and after a long tiring, bought me a plane ticket for Beijing, because I had an interview the next day and there were not even trains anymore. The plane was leaving in 2 hours and it's a good thing that the terminal and the train station are connected, because if it happens to be at Pudong Airport, it gives me that I did not arrive.

flying for the first time with Air China, which by the way, that bland is the dinner you get. On the plane I met a super cute girl who was on her way to Spain, since she studied in Salamanca. The trip was too short, as she told me, I would have preferred that the trip had been to Spain. If it is to eat it. On arrival I was expecting the warm welcome welcome from Beijing and my friend waiting for me to pick me up and stay that night. The rest of the week I spent in the dorm room where Sami is waiting for other interviews.
