Attyat's Journey to China

Current Location

Heiying Village, Gansu Province

Hello! My name is Attyat and I'm living in Shanghai, China where I'm conducting research at a top-performing public high school. I'm so excited to share my work and experiences in China with you!


This week I traveled to Beijing to visit the Summer Palace. Join me and learn more about the Summer Palace and life in China! 


What is it like to live in an apartment in Shanghai? I would like to share my experience with you.  

Field Notes

Wintertime in China can be quite cold, especially in older houses that don’t have central heating systems. How do people stay warm? 


China's suburbs are always growing and changing. They are a mix of new apartments and old factories that connect to the city center by giant highways.
