The meter read 12 RMB by the time we got there, but ...
... up at 6 am and goes running all over town (did we mention how altitude sick the rest of us are?), has the most intense teacher (think "love child of Hello Kitty and a boot camp sergeant"), is a bon vivant at every meal, ventures out like a mad dog or Englishman at the height of the noonday sun (did we mention how dry it is and how much UV light is beating down on us? why all the women carry parasols??), and then
studies hard for hours every evening.
