Host xiao li is a pretty, warm-hearted, helpful and very talkative person.
Since Beijing may have heavy rain in Beijing during our trip, she give us warning and suggestions in case some attractions closed due to bad weather. It’s really useful for us to plan our trip.
Our flight is delayed for 8 hrs. And she wait for us overnight and keep checking our flight information.
Her home may not easy to find at the first, she come out and take us to her home and tell us some easy ways to reach it.
She prepare lots of things for us when we arrived. She lives with her lovely dog, huajuan, it’s energetic and clever.
Xiao li also share a lot about herself and the city by giving us lots of travel tips and advises. She is definitely an "old" Beijing citizen, she is familiar with lots of old Beijing culture. During our dinner, she introduce lots of Beijing traditional food to us.
I think our relationship is more likely a friend, more than a host-guest relation.
Although the trip is too short to short to visit every single corner in Beijing city, and least I meet a new friend in this full of history and modern city.
She may no easy to travel around the world frequently, but she is waiting people around the world to visit her.
