My answer is generally “why not”? I’m truly surprised that people find the decision unexpected…I don’t think I’m proving a lot of creativity with my choice.
China represents, after all:
- the dominant country in Asia
- the most populous country in the world
- a rising economy
- an incredibly rich place of culture and history
China, is somehow, a mysterious place for me. Totally different than anything one can find in Europe. Not even the writing is intuitive! And yes, the more I read about it, the more I get into the language, the more I want to discover. Tomorrow I’m going to apply for the visa. 31st of August 2014 I’ll land on Guiyang airport. Not before passing homey Berlin first, though.
