I had a seat near the music and just sat and enjoyed the music, at first I didn’t care much for traditional singing but it has grown on me. I can’t say I love all traditional singing, but today the music group had a singer and I enjoyed her singing very much. After taking pictures and video I decided to walk back to the market and get a tea to drink on the way home. I asked for heqizheng herbal tea 和其正 a new favorite of mine. The first time I had this was when we got off the plane in Beijing 9 months ago. It comes in a bottle that is similar in shape to a coke bottle and it is the same shade of dark carmel as coke and not reading Chinese I got it thinking it was coke. It’s not and I was not happy at all because it can’t be mistaken for coke once you try it. Fast forward to now and I’m liking the taste, amazing what 9 months will do for your taste buds. Anyway the vendor, someone I’ve seen often at the market just stood there and looked at me when I asked for this drink I have gotten lots of drink at his stand, but this was the first time I’d asked for a Chinese beverage (this is actually the same place that Chuck got sugar cane juice from in the fall) I had to ask again and tell him that I liked the taste before he would get me the drink. On my way home from the market, I stopped into Gaga, a women’s clothing store that I’ve been wanting to try since we got to Zhengzhou in August. I can now say that I tried something on in that store, but I don’t think I will be back anytime soon. Number one, I really do have enough clothes and number two there are parts of my body that I would like to slim down before I get more clothing, perhaps this fall I’ll take a plunge again and buy something for fall there.
Well, I’m home now Nate is playing a computer game with his friends online and I need to start dinner soon. Last night we went out to dinner at the restaurant across the street from our apartment and tonight since it will just me Nate and I, I’ll throw something together.
