Happy September to all! I want to thank everyone for making Augusts “ARRIVAL SURVIVAL” a huge success. We had a great turnout and I hope everyone came away with a little more helpful information.

Now on to September… This month has gone by so quickly, with Mid-Autumn Festival now a memory and everyone gearing up for Golden Week in a couple of weeks (October 1st)! Let INN help you with some fun things to do, so if you are a foreign passport holder come join us on Monday, September 26th from 10-12 at Capital Mansions Athletic Center for the Topic of “In & Around Beijing”. There is SO much to do & see and to keep you busy while living here. We will have several guest speakers, each discussing different ways to explore Beijing over the course of your stay here. Should be an exciting morning, meeting of new friends and old alike! I hope you will come join us for a fun and informative gathering. Afterwards, join our Lunch Bunch as we head over to Palms L.A. Kitchen, a Korean/Mexican fusion cuisine. It is located in the LiangmaQiao area. Weather permitting, we will be outside soaking up the cooler temps!

For those of you who won’t be able to join us for September’s gathering, please note that October’s topic is our annual Medical Q&A. We will have physicians from some of the local International clinics and hospitals, including pediatricians, dentists, etc. It will be 2 full hours of being able to ask questions that you’d like answered in regards to living in Beijing. Best part is, you won’t have to make an appointment!

INN also has some more interesting news! PLEASE SAVE THE DATE: Saturday, October 22nd, 11-7, as INN will be hosting a Fall Bazaar in Sanlitun at the Topwin Center, right over by Mercedes Me and the Intercontinental Hotel. We will have a FUN FILLED DAY with lots of great vendors, music, food, beverage and more…. So we hope to definitely see you there!
