Day 1 in Tianjin
I am going to blog briefly about the differences and similarities in the two cities thus far. I already notice that Tianjin has less people than Beijing. The way the people act is more laid back and not in a rush. There is some rushing involved but it is not near as bad as Beijing. The structures of the buildings are not as modern as Beijing. I have a feeling this has to do with that Beijing had the Olympic games last year so they had to modernize more quickly than other cities. I am not saying Tianjin isn't modern; it's just that the buildings don't look as nice as Beijing. Those are some of the key differences I notice already. The main similarity I see is that of the driving. The driving here is the same as Beijing; there just isn't as many drivers. The food here is also the same as Beijing; the difference is that here seems to be better tasting than some of the food we had in Beijing. I also notice the beds are still hard but not as hard as the previous hotel we stayed at. Another difference I notice is that between the two hotels that there isn't a separate room for the bathroom. The two areas are basically combined. The last difference is that we have two Ethernet cables and not just one, also the internet here is faster than Beijing. I am sure I will see more similarities and differences in the future as more days come in Tianjin.
