For the love of toilet paper
This may seem like a silly topic but I'm mind boggled by the bathrooms here. If you look at the video I posted yesterday you’ll see what I’m talking about. We’ve come to find that these toilets are more common than we thought
On a lighter note:
We went to a couple different art galleries today, most of them in downtown Shanghai
Random Thoughts and One Line Experiences of Today:
When the Chinese decide where to eat out for dinner and finally decide do they say, "Let’s have Chinese?" I seriously asked my professor this; he doesn’t know the answer.
We often hear in America that Chinese people are the worst drivers. I beg to differ. They are the most aggressive and aware drivers I have ever seen, with a reaction time that allows them to stop 1cm from a walking person, biker or another vehicle EVERYTIME about EVERY 10seconds. I think they drive with their hand on the horn and their foot on the brake because they expect to get cut off.. we should learn from them; they’re experts!
The government has ban Facebook and Youtube. No comment.
“What’s and aimer?”- Jeramiah
WC is the international word for bathroom.
When Wendy (our translator and trip coordinator) says something is not spicy.. it’s spicy.
I giggled inside when Caroline asked Jackson (Wendy’s brother and artist) if she could have his autograph and he said, “Later.” She put her head down and walked away. We laughed after about how awkward it was.
I’m using an adapter that says “Caution do not use with computers.” Yes I’m using it with my computer at this moment.
Tomorrow we’ll be leaving the big city. I’m hoping to have internet in these small villages but If I don’t I will keep writing until I can post again. I’m planning to have each student on the trip do a web cam video so If you’re reading to follow one of us, stay posted so you can hear it and see it from their them!
p.s Thanks for commenting the last one... if you want to say anything to anyone of the trip please go ahead and comment and I'll relay they message!
