Remote studies at Tsinghua allowed me to become a millionaire in Bali (in local currency)

BALI, Indonesia – I considered all pros and cons and bought my tickets to Bali in mid-November. By the end of November, I was quarantining in Jakarta, Indonesia. Now, I am taking classes sitting on the beach on the Island of Gods.
It was a long journey of 16 hours and then three days of being locked in the hotel. When I was checking out, I asked the admin at the reception desk to exchange $50 for me, so I can order a taxi. To my surprise, I got more than 700 000 Indonesian rupees (!), which basically makes me a millionaire here.
When I arrived in Bali, there were many things to explore. Although it rained a lot, I have loved the experiences I've had and the people that I have met here.
If you are still convinced that remote learning limits you, I am here to change your mind. Remote learning gives you the freedom that you have always dreamt of having.
