5 Things To Do in Harbin

In a blink of an eye Christmas is here and I’m drinking tea in my Family’s house in New Jersey. Looking back now, I am very lucky to have traveled so much this year. With the cold weather now at my doorstep, I was reminded of my trip to Harbin at the beginning of this year.

I close my eyes and I open them again. I still cannot believe it has been a month since I arrived in China. Things have been a complete whirlwind, a complete blur. Right now I am sitting down in a small coffee shop across the street from one of the schools I work at, drinking hot water and reminiscing on some of the trips I’ve taken within this first month.
