Adventures in #Translation!
Tried ordering an iced tea and cola. Pointed to iced tea picture . . . waited then said ‘Bing #Cola’ (Iced Cola). She looks at me funny, but says ‘ok!’ Hands me a cola in the tea glass. 😜😜 Had to go back and get the tea – too funny!
This is how we do homecoming in China! We go WAY back to the ancient alumni era 😜
Iced Coffee #China style! Here in Henan, most restaurants don’t have ice. The Chinese don’t really like iced drinks – believing the cold unboiled water will make them sick and is a bad combination with your inside organs. (Probably true of the water here.)
But Ice Cream is a different story. Still bad for your health but not so likely to kill you. So if you Order iced coffee or an iced soda You’ll get Ice cream coffee or a ice cream float 😄
The Art students at my university are allowed to paint random building walls here on campus to show off their skills. This one is dedicate to tee Chinese president – lots of support and nationalism here!
Haha! 😂 I want this for myself. This is Awesome – and only $27 on Taobao! (189￥). I think the tail is the pillow!

Haha!😜 Visited a 5⭐ hotel this weekend and found that the bathroom was entirely see-through. Embarassing, no?!? Asked my students why and got this lovely response ‘Many hotels in China do this. It’s very common. Because sometimes the men, they come with a strange woman. Or two. Or different ones. And when they go to the bathroom, all their money is taken. So this way they can see and be safe.’ 😒 😂 That’s hilarious. A five star hotel arranges its bathroom around keeping rich men safe from their ‘women’. Sad. Very, very sad. #lifeinchina #china #travel #humor #abroad, #whataworld
