... so I thanked her and said I would use that. She also said there is a machine in the classroom building that we can pay to use. I thanked them both in Chinese and went in my room, ******. I didn't want to tell the girl that I wouldn't even know HOW to wash clothes using a bar of soap. At times like this, being a spoiled American sucks.

So I decided which items I needed washed first (pajamas and underwear) and I washed those. Without the spin cycle from the machine, it ...

Excluding the cable car tickets (50 Yuan), we'll get there and back again with under 200 Yuan. So, it's 4200 v. 200 Yuan -- easy choice! After we regrouped and had a plan together for tomorrow, ...
