The People in Our Neighborhood


Just to add to my original The People in Our Neighborhood post....

These are our wonderful, neighborhood vegetable sellers. Their stall is a two-minute walk from our front door, which makes it very convenient to run out and grab a cucumber.

A medium-sized bag of vegetables -- carrots, potatoes, tomatoes, green beans -- is usually under 10 kuai (about $1.30).

I'm really going to miss this convenience, this price, but most of all, this couple. They are genuinely kind. I enjoy buying my vegetables from friends.

  1. I just started to "follow" you, so I don't know if you plan on leaving soon, but let me tell you-I'm jealous you had the opportunity! Good Lord, how much writing and inspiration can come from an experience like that.

    Thanks for the post! I'll be by again soon.
