Mr. LT and I left the restaurant and set off in that direction and almost literally stumbled upon it. In parts it seems a throw back in time and yet it is very modern and tourist driven too. So many shops to buy the trinket, t-shirt, bobble head. Some of the shops are cheap some having beautiful items. We managed to spend money in both.
Mr. LT: Hey, I’m getting this dragon. It’s my animal.
M: What? Your animal?
Mr. LT: Yea, my Chinese birth year animal.
M: No it’s not. You’re a dog.
Mr. LT: ?
M: Look at the chart…dog.
Mr. LT: But the dog is stupid looking, I want the dragon. I feel like a dragon.
M: (Head shaking)
I had broken my sunglasses that day and on keen observance Mr. LT noticed that in the ‘dragon’ shop they had sunglasses for $2.
Mr. LT: Hey, they have some nice sunglasses you should look them.
M: Um, $2? Really? Ok.
M: So, How about these? Or these?
Mr. LT: Hmmmm, yea… not the first ones. The second pair…they’re nice, kinda different but look good on you.
M: Different? What does that mean?
Mr. LT: No it’s a good thing it means they look good, just different. You know.
M: ???, no I don’t know. Why is there no mirror?
Mr. LT: Seriously they look fine…what’s wrong with having a different look?
(I take the sunglasses to the counter)
M: So, what do you think of these?
SG: Oh, vely nice, vely diffelent. Pretty. Look good on you.
SG: You buy? Look vely diffelent good. Two dalla’.
Only two dalla!
