Not Speaking Chinese – 3

In Ping’an we were met by and dealt with the Red and White Yao minorities who make wonderful embroidery and weaving. The women also grow their hair their entire life and make a ceremony of combing and coiling their hair each day. These women are beautiful, have the world’s most charming smiles and can sell ANYTHING. They jabber away in their version of Chinese, smiling all the while. I couldn’t articulate anything they said, but understood all of it even without translation. But, we have learned that if ANYONE walks up to you and says “Hello,” or calls out to you “Hello,” they want to SELL YOU SOMETHING.
