... turn signal.

An aside on driving. With China's burgeoning middle class an enormous percent of the drivers have been on the road for less than 5 years. And it shows. To get a car in Beijing you first have to have your license which means going to a driving school. The system sounds quite similar to ours with 70 hours of practice required in the learning stage.

... cliff faces.On our second day in Datong we went to both of its large parks, and discovered they both had big fairgrounds with rollercoasters and ferriswheels, one even had a small zoo and a aqua centre.
