After nearly not getting our visas in time, my husband and I happily made it to Beijing Thursday and are looking for a place. My coworkers are trying to help, but we're also looking to other resources.
We're looking for a place that is easily accessible to my 10-month research job on Nanwei Lu, blocks from Temple of Heaven park. I would love to be able to walk or commute fairly easily. We're happy with a studio or one-bedroom, or even the right roommate situation. Given my stipend and my husband's salary, we are capped at 5k RMB/month for rent.
If anyone has any ideas, we would be very grateful. We're looking at the websites and working with my Chinese colleagues, but the process is tough. We gave up our Nashville home in June to see family, etc. in NY and are ready to have a place to call home again!
