First post in Beijing to share my first difficulties. My post title refers to a famous film directed by Sofia Coppola where a man is completely lost in Tokyo. This is comparable to my experience on my first days here.

It is really confirmed that only few people know English in China. The Language Great Wall is on each street corner.

I took some pictures in the streets to illustrate my new daily life.

Which way to go?

Thanksfully, I found my hotel, got several lunchs and dinners and moved around the city… The language signing works everywhere in the world ;).

Next step: learn Chinese ASAP! :)
