Just now, as I was about to sit down and read for a bit I heard in a very loud and proud Chinese voice, ‘Nah, nah, knocking on heaven’s door!’ Over, and over, and over. This went on for about a minute (about the time it took for the elevator to descend)…and whoever this aspiring singer was did not care who heard. She was jammin’ and there was nobody gonna say different.

This is just a typical day of life in the ‘Hai. People here do the oddest of things, with complete abandon! They walk around in full pajama glory, they dress up their significant other in uber matchy outfits, they think that Christmas music is good enough for year long listening, and they spit all over…And just when you think that you’re accustomed to the randomness of China:


This is China! This is my life.
