HOMEWORK

“Ni Hao. How do you do?”

“Dispensary Number one is a pharmacy with some wild looking cures.”

“What do we have here? What’s this?”

“It’s Chinese caterpillar fungus. It’s for lung tube.”

“Chinese caterpillar fungus? For the lungs? May I see it? Could we look at one?”

Next door food store number one offers up mounds and mounds of fruits, candies, meats and vegetables. Figuring out which is which could be challenging.

The western end of Nanjingdonglu grows upscale with elite shops that the average Chinese worker can only afford to look at. Still the streets are throng with eager shoppers, Shanghai’s youthful growing middle class.

“Taxis in Shanghai are clean, safe and extremely inexpensive. It’s the way to get around. The only catch is most drivers don’t speak or read English. So get the concierge at your hotel to write down the destination in Chinese, and away you go.”

Good guide books will also have a list of Shanghai destinations in Chinese characters.

“Ni Hao! Here I’m going to right there.”

“In Shanghai area, the most popular tea is that green tea. The function of oolong tea can for digestion, also can for lose weight. We say oolong tea is slimming tea.”

“Lose weight?”

“Lose weight tea.”

“Pour me a big cup.”

“Oh, I will give you that.”

“In addition to drinking green and oolong tea, the Chinese drink a variety of flavored teas. The most dramatically beautiful is jasmine tea that blossoms when steeped in hot water.”

“Why is one Romeo and one is Juliet?”

“And the long shape is Romeo, the round is Juliet. The Romeo is a red flower hidden inside, and Juliet is a white flower hidden inside -- different shape.”

Romeo and Juliet are jasmine infused tea leaves wrapped around flowers. Romeo has a slightly stronger flavor than Juliet.
