Yesterday was a great air quality day. We noticed that it was sunny outside and decided that we definitely needed to get outside, and once we were out we were amazed at how far we could see with no smog. Right down the road is the ZiFeng Tower, aka the 7th tallest building in the world. It is 450 meters tall (1,480 ft) and is 89 stories tall. Because it's so close to our house and is so freaking tall it works as a landmark when we're out and about exploring the city.
It's 80 kuai (about 14 dollars) for admission, and this price in China is a little ridiculous- you could get an hour and a half massage or dinner for three nights for the price of admission, but because it was so clear and the 7th tallest we decided to splurge and go up.

We looked at the cafe that was up there (they had Breyers ice cream!) but after seeing prices like those, we high tailed it out of there.
It was a great day to mark yet another week off from work. I'm excited to really start my internship and just in general getting bored of time off. I'm really not good with free time. I got my first job in college when classes weren't time consuming enough and that trend has continued all the way to China. I want to work! Soon enough, soon enough. Love,
