Rain, Rain, Go Away

Fruit is one of the simple pleasures of life in China.  I have more favorite fruits now than there were fruits that I ate in America.  Pomelos, pingguoli, kumquats, mandarins, how I love thee.  And strawberries, bananas, kiwis, pineapple are all so cheap.  I had a huge bowl of strawberries and two bananas for breakfast; I paid 6 kuai (90 cents) and got change back. 

Another simple pleasure of living in China is the fact that it’s entirely possible to eat for under a dollar.  Fried egg and tomato with hand-pulled noodles (large): 7 yuan, or $1.  It made an excellent dinner tonight.

I’m ready for it to stop raining here.  I have to change pants between every trip outside, and it’s really getting old. 

The good news is, it’s great TV-watching weather.  I caught up on The Office today and am starting Freaks and Geeks.  Ugh.
