We were housed at Beijing University (Beida), a strikingly beautiful western style campus with colorful traditional Chinese architecture.
All buildings belonging to university departments looked to me like Chinese temples of wisdom, red jewels scattered in a huge green park around a lake.
In the evening, I was surprised and scared to find small, inoffensive lizards crawling on windows screen, occasionally finding a way to get inside.
I was surrounded by many Chinese friends, warm, kind and helpful.
