I have two phones: my iPhone and a cheap Chinese smartphone I bought so my school could keep in touch with me. The problem is sometimes I leave one phone, like this day when I only had the Chinese phone, so I had to do some serious technology wrangling to get these photos to my computer. Hence, the reason they're all over the place -- day and night, food and places and all that jazz.
I decided to be brave and get outside my comfort zone on my last free day before training starts tomorrow. My guide mentioned there was a mall close by, so I went to find it. It was huge and overwhelming and I'm pretty confident that even after several hours of walking I still didn't see half of it. Once I got up the courage to buy things, I couldn't stop. I bought a pressed juice, a new journal and a calendar and pens, sushi in a restaurant, toothpaste and shower shoes, instant coffee and detergent and water and an orange. In total, I spent about 350 yuan or $50 usd. Pictures inside the mall weren't allowed, so take my word for it -- huge!
