I guess I am going to China

I booked my flight to China yesterday. I get to fly through Doha, Qatar. I just got done reading an article in my National Geographic magazine this month about the place. First off, it will be my first dictator country, even though it is a fairly liberalized compared with other middle eastern countries. I plan to do a short shopping spree in the duty free mall within the airport.

On the same lines, China will be my first communist country. I am excited to see which websites are banned, what type of propaganda I see and all that. I have started taking Chinese language classes and they are really funny. My classmates and I mainly are just repeating what we hear. However, when the teacher corrects me and asks me to repeat myself, I say the same thing and he says, "good job". It is really funny since I have no idea what the difference is between the way I said the first time and the second. One of my classmates made a short video of our first day. Check out the video!
