a snapshot into our daily life in north-western China!
good morning wake up call
Quite often, a local friend calls me for some help with translating a word into English. Being an English-speaking foreigner in a city of 3+ million people has its 'perks'. This morning my cell phone rang at 7:12am (a bit early in my book) with a request for some translation help. I was laying groggily in bed, but decided to oblige my friend. This morning, my friend wanted to know how to say, "pick your nose," "blow your nose," and my favorite, "vomit" ......all before breakfast. We were holding back laughter during the entire conversation. Then he invited us to a wedding next weekend. Now that is a perk!
