Raro and his girlfriend Tracy are the kindest and most generous people! I had so much fun staying with them!
They met me at the subway and we took the bus from there to their flat (very close to line 2, one of the main tourist lines in Beijing). They took me to a dumpling restaurant to try some traditional Beijing dishes, then we went back to their apartment where we played games the rest of the night! They also left me a tray of dessert and plenty of food for the next day.
I had the entire flat to myself, which is incredibly spacious. I felt so comfortable and at home, I almost didn't do anything the next day as I just wanted to stay in and relax.
Thank you so much Tracy and Raro for your hospitality and kindness. You are absolutely lovely people and I look forward to meeting up with you again, whenever and wherever that might be :)
