In the very heart of Beijing

0712In the very heart of Beijing

Being a student of Chinese language at the Confucius Institute in the city of Cluj-Napoca (Romania) in 2014, I was given the opportunity of participating in a sponsored summer camp in China, which lasted for two weeks, paying just for my airplane tickets. The whole experience involved attending several cultural activities in the city of Hangzhou and visiting the most important touristic attractions in the cities of Shanghai and Beijing.

Out of the thousands of photos taken, the one in the Tiananmen Square, having the Forbidden City in the background, is in my opinion, the most iconic, as it suggests the foreigner’s interest in Chinese national symbols, the country’s past as well as its future.
