Oh yes before I forget to say, the candy for a few days ago tasted like Butterfingers crispy peanut center. Yummy just not the taste I was looking for, but very yummy!
I talked to our friend Julia today; she is the Chinese teacher that teaches Michael my tutor. We were talking about how I need to say 'My Chinese name is Ziyu (purple jade...did anyone have doubts that I would find a way to get purple in my name?) Then I tried out some of my Chinese on her and I'm sounding good, Chinese speakers can understand me which is the goal to get my students to understand their work and people in the stores to understand what I'm looking for. I'm looking forward to the day when I can carry on a conversation with Qi Yan in Chinese. I am able to recognize more and more characters as we are out and about and suddenly I stop take pictures of things that I understand and Chuck and Nate come back to see what has happened to me.
For the most part it’s been a silent here today Nate went out for a walk today and he got baked sweet potatoes for dinner. Nate got the last of the potatoes on the vendors cart today that means it was probably an early day for him tonight.
Well so far I’ve had one answer for my picture from a few days ago. Thank you Ellen, your answer was right on anyone else wants to weigh in? Next time I see something odd in the market I’ll take the picture, but for now I’ve got two new pics I took at home today.
