Do not try to go Dutch in China. If you absolutely must split the check, here’s the information you need.
My daughter likes soy sauce…a lot. In my attempt to order it for her, I dropped a letter from the Pinyin final causing confusion for the waitress and amusement for our fellow diners.
This was my 2nd trip to China, but in a lot of ways, it felt like my first. In 2008, I traveled to China to adopt my daughter so the trip was preplanned with guides and drivers helping us almost daily. This time, it was different. I went off the beaten path to places where foreign tourists rarely travel.
After my previous trip to China, I wrote this post on our personal blog so other families traveling for adoption wouldn’t have to do quite so much research determining what products they might need. As I begin preparing for my upcoming trip, I found the post and thought readers of the blog might find this information useful.
Is it seriously May already? I’m not sure if I took a nap and missed April, but I feel like I accomplished nothing Chinese-related after recommitting myself at the beginning of April.
