Xuxu’s Point of View
Do you want to donate some blood?
I apologize for not posting for days. Xuxu has been pretty darn sick with fever, cough and headache. Night before last she scared us to death by announcing that she felt like she had “candy wrappers” in her chest. She was right, I could hear “crinkles” in her lungs and so we started a course of antibiotics. Right now she is on Amoxicillin and there is a Zpac winging its way toward us too, just in case the Amoxicillin does not wipe it out. Thankfully, the Dr. said that I did the right thing and started the correct medication. Whew! (And thank heavens for the internet!)
So, where does everything else stand? We have hot water again, so showers are much more enjoyable. Lucky for us, the days without hot water were actually warm and enjoyable. Today, not so much. 43 degrees F (high) with 81% humidity. I swear it is actually colder inside the apartment than it is outside! Last night my feet were ice blocks and there was nothing I could do to warm them up! (Can’t wait until Da is here to warm them up for me! Only 6 more days! ;o) The poor little heater in our room is working constantly and can not get the room above 50 degrees (F). Comes with the territory of “rationed gas” and concrete buildings. I just wish we had a microwave so that we could heat up a rice bag for my feet!
So, today I managed to find the time to download Xuxu’s camera. She hasn’t taken a lot of photos, but there are some interesting shots that I thought worthy of posting here. I will post the photos and let her comment after each one.
You would think they would at least look up the spelling on the internet before they go to the trouble of making a sign!
Gross food. I would never eat here. People get to choose their own sticks of food and then they cook it for you.
This was the sign for a coffee shop. We can’t figure out if they are saying you’ll be on time if you buy
your coffee here, or if be was meant to be bean, as in coffee bean.
(Marmee here: I looked up the characters, they are Beautiful, Nourish, and Castle (or stronghold).
I think that they mean something like,” beautiful nourishment for strength or stronghold” or “be for all time“! ;o )
