Apartment Hunting

A couple of students from my school took me & another new teacher to look for apartments today. I was so glad for the help. I had no idea where to start, & I don't speak enough Chinese to ask the right questions.

We saw four different apartments. One was very nice - clean, bright & modern with new furniture & a good view of the city. The other three were older & darker with out-of-date furniture & appliances. The rents ranged from 2500 to 3500 RMB (between US$350 & US$500).

The other teacher decided to take the nicer apartment. It was a two-bedroom & I was looking for something smaller. I will look at more apartments this weekend.

Wow! With those prices, you must feel like you're almost back home again, especially compared to Vietnam.

Wow! The cost of rent is almost like here! You're not in Vietnam anymore!
