We have been traveling so it is hard to access the one computer available to everyone in our hostel. Anyway, we went to the
At the bottom, we tried to buy our driver lunch but he refused. Come to find out, he would have lost a lot of face with the people at GM if he agreed to let us pay. If you have never had lunch with someone that speaks a different language and all you have is a language book, you are missing out on one of life’s more amusing and humble experiences. This night we also took advantage of the 5 quay beers at our hostel and the knowledge of the Chinese imparted to us by our friendly bartender
Like I said before, we have been ripped off a couple of times since I have been here but we didn't take it from the taxi driver in Sanya. At first he said he couldn't run the meter because it was Spring Festival, bullshit. In the end he did turn it on but when we got about 100 feet from our hostel and 6.60 into the cab fare, he shut it off. When we got out I gave him 7 quay at which he threw a fit.

As we checked in the first night a cute guy bought a beer. From behind the front desk Vinnie told the guy his new haircut looked good and he was even more handsome. After Vinnie told him the bottle opener was on the door of the cooler he still couldn’t find it. In his defense we didn’t see it at first either. Regardless, when the guy left, he knowingly looked at us and laughed, “Why are the handsome ones always so steeoopid?”
