The farmers have their land taken so that highrise buildings can be built for housing ...
... accented Chinese. As they head towards their place at Wudaokou, I peel off for the subway station.
8:22pm: On the subway, I whip out my iPhone instead of my flashcards. The rest of the day I might be studying Chinese, but the subway ride home is my total zen hour. I blast away at classic American artists such as John Mayer, Zac Brown Band, and, most importantly, DMX's eternal "Where Da Hood At" (yea, I downloaded that -- miss you's guys).
