Using #Didi for 1st time!

SUCCESS! I finally tried using #Didi for the first time this week! In the US, we have #uber but China has a program called #Didi as their alternative. πŸš—

I really enjoyed it actually! You put in your pick-up spot and destination. It finds a driver and tells you how long till they arrive, a map tracking their car coming to you, their license plate #, and a car description (i.e. black Toyota). They pick you up, take you to the destination, trigger the receipt – it is automatically paid for via #alipay or #wechat and you rate their service.

By the grace of God they Actually now have an #English versionof the app which lets you type the names of places in English or #Pinyin. Super convenient!!

I do so love #tech advancements 😜

The World Through #TechΒ 

The #Tech world – always communicating behind glass, usually with filters distorting the view.  Looking each other face – to – face might help us see one another more clearly.

Learn Something New Every Day!

Learned something #new today! The bullet #train πŸš„ in #China πŸ‡¨πŸ‡³has seats A, B, C, D, and F.  I asked why no E? ❓

According to my #student the trains are copying the #flight system.  It used to be there were six letters . . . So A & F were #window seat, B & E were #middle seats, and C & D were #aisle seats.  Now if there is no middle seat, they skip that letter.  πŸ˜œ  The things I learn!

The Other Mother – #Huawei


Haha! πŸ˜‚ I Love my #huawei Chinese phone. It has the best #English descriptions for things sometimes. Apparently our #Weather is ‘dreary and very unhealthy’ – you know, life just sucks sometimes 😜 I just got a Warning from the phone for Tuesday when it’ll get down to 21degrees!!! – so cold they asked me to check my ‘mouth muffler, ear mufflers, and gloves. πŸ˜‚ It’s like Having a second mom. 😝
