TLG II Or, my lack of skill stays hidden

Qiaotou, China

They do not speak English at the Naxi Family Guesthouse. Go, but be prepared. Naxi Ma Ma was waiting outside my door one time because she wanted me to translate a phone call for her. But when she called the number the person was not there. Phew! My skills go unchallenged!

In no particular order... Today's events

Beijing, China

Why do we take pictures? To remember an event? To document atrocities? To sustain awe of beauty? Why did the fluent English-speaking Chinese gentleman clandestinely take mine after helping me decipher which subway stop would bring me close to the wholesale tea market? Surely with his language skills he had talked to foreigners before. If only he had silenced his smart phone I would have never known.
