International Communications

Stick and I saw this car on Saturday when we were walking down to Houhai from our NEW APARTMENT.

“Wash me” in three languages. I love Beijing!

We kept walking down along the lake to the Starbucks. It was just a few months ago that we were ducking into that Starbucks because Stick couldn’t feel his feet… now we enjoyed the air conditioning and iced coffees. Inside, we ran into Carol/Yuyu, a math teacher at my school and an awesome officemate. Made me feel like a real resident, bumping into my coworker at the coffeeshop! We hung out with Carol for a while, and then continued on our adventures.

“Can we go back up to the dusty car?” I asked Stick, as we left the coffeeshop. “I remembered how to say ‘wash me’ in Spanish.”

    3 years of Spanish in High School… I think it was ‘lavar’ ? Lavo, Lavas, Lavan, Lavamos …. I’m leaving out a few conjugations there though, I’m certain of it.

    I think it’s something like Me Lavarse… but now that I wrote that down, I don’t think that’s an imperative. Hmmm….
    One great thing about Chinese, though, is that you never have to conjugate verbs!
