A couple of Saturdays ago, we had an errand to run up at the school. It was pretty nice day, so we all decided to ride. Jessie needed to pick her bike up because she left it there during the week. So Jessie rode on the back of Sean’s bike. Here’s how Chinese ride as passengers. It looks a little scary, but actually isn’t too bad.
On our way we passed an old fruit market. The govt recently closed this market to make way for a new highway. Here’s a bike hauling away abandoned junk, left behind.
Fruit vendors move to the streets
After arriving at school we let the kids play. Notice the photographer in the reflection of this picture.
Megan and Maddie spend time on the playground. Rachel tries out riding my electric bike.
Rachel keeps asking me to let her ride it on the streets, but I’m not ready to let her out there with all the traffic. Here on the school grounds is a gated place to ride with no other cars around.
Megan loves the playground, but my, my she gets so dirty. The ground is covered with small pebbles, which is safe for the kids, but the air/city here is so dirty, the ground gets filthy. She has to go straight to the shower after arriving homeIf you don’t believe me, take a look at the bottom of Megan’s feet after being out wearing flip-flops today. Keep in mind, she did have a shower this morning.
