... Chinese students how to say "I don't eat meat and fish" to help me when ordering at the market, and they kindly taught me: "Wô bò chī ròu hé yú." We made plans with the Chinese students to go to the highest building in Nanjing this evening to enjoy the night view of the city. So after the Zhong making we went to quickly freshen up back at the hotel. When we got to the tower there was a sign "poor visibility" which is not unusual in ...

... Fresh in town (popular with Westerners). Caroline showed me how to get a taxi expat style: walk into a 5 star hotel, pretend you’re staying there and have the concierge organize a taxi for you. Apparently this is also a good trick for posting mail. My driver had asked for the night off (social event) so left us at Elements Fresh. The taxi home (approx 30 min drive) cost us a total of $8! Bargain! A 10 min taxi ride from Adelaide airport cost me $22 in ...
