Sock buying vocabulary intact

Beijin, China


Though pleased that long haul trans-polar flights are not sweat inducing, the more fresh clothes I have, the better.  On the flight I had attempted to eavesdrop on two mandarin speakers and was perturbed that I couldn't even get the gist of their conversation.  On the streets of after dark Beijing I came upon a socks out of a box vendor.  I purchased 4 pair.  You'll be happy to know that my sock buying vocabulary is most satisfactory.  Yao wadzi ma.  They were obviously not discussing footware on the plane.  If you ever are in China and have a sock emergency I'm the translator for you!

Feeling smug!

Beijing, China


I am packed for two weeks in a very small back pack & a medium size book bag. That includes toiletries, pharmacuticals, two changes of clothes, a camera with small accessories, sandals, two disassembled hiking sticks, two shawls and LOTS of socks. The two fleeces & rain shell I wear to the airport. But I'm sure I could stuff those into my two bags. too. I am carrying a plastic bag of fruit & snacks. That doesn't count, right?!
