My first day here I found a grocery store - oh! the variety! Found some yummy street food - held out my hand full of change & the lady at the food stall counted out 5 RMB (about 70cents) very slowly so I could see what she was doing. Walked down a side street bustling with a night market.
I actually understood little bits & pieces of what people were saying, especially numbers & things like "how are you?" & "do you want some?" I'm looking forward to improving my Mandarin skills while I'm here. Juliana will be so impressed!
