Here is the series of my first trip to Beijing. Summary of the first sensations from Beijing: there are lot of street dogs , but only poodles and spitz. Others, apparently, the Chinese do not recognize. There are lot of street food, the composition can not be determined by appearance. For example, when I tasted a sausage, it turned out to be a strawberry jam.

Actual language in communicating with the Chinese is sign language. Moreover, locals are divided into 2 types: those who do not speak English at all, and those who speak fluently – there is no intermediate state.

In general, despite the seemingly exotic Chinese culture seems warm and familiar. Today I saw a red mongoose on the street.
