By the way, I showed Violet a picture I had taken on the Great Wall that said "No spitting please". I took a picture of it because I thought it was funny. Later on I found out everybody spits in China... Everywhere... Even a taxi-driver spat through the car window... I told my mom: "No tip for this pig!", but she tipped him anyway...

You have to spit into a tissue or a bag, and then put it into a dustbin to complete the process

OMG! They don't tell them not to spit; they are going to "teach them how to do it".

If they could be able to tell the people not to spit at all, they wouldn't spend much time to tell them how to spit correctly now. :wink:

The spitting is bad in pretty much every Asian country I've been to. It's not a just a Chinese specialty. At least the ones I've been to - Vietnam, Thailand, Taiwan.

Check out these pics from Southern China. This is where I want to go!

Elba, why would Maja want to jump south to the north of Mexico and visit you when she could easily jump north to the south of Canada and visit me?

Stop the madness! No one is jumping anywhere. Actually, they both have to jump to visit Dixie and Dixie will jump to visit me. There we go.... Meet me at my place on the 1700 hours. Roger, officers? :wink:

I'm not a majo, I'm a gringo. I'm doing this for your own good. Think about it, if you jump up to Canada and then jump down to Mexico, you will gain super gloating powers! You'd hit the entire continent of North America on one trip! What would your friends say about that? Is that not something to gloat about?

ha hahahahahahah

What funny topic.
firstable: Unknownsu you are not a gringo. you are the cousin of the gringos.
second: Lenny, why Dixie should "Meet you at your place"? Be polite, please, maybe you could meet Dixie at the hotel or invited her to dinner or lunch.
third: The invitation of Dixie is the best. I will try to save money in order to go to San Francisco at least one day.
Fourth: The next vacation of Dixie, after San Francisco, will be at México, and she must not to pay hotel, because she will be mu guest at my apartment.

Seriously, what is your problem? If you have a problem of understanding Enlgish, please ask. Can someone explain my post to her? I'm so done with her.

Guys, if you want to argue, do it somewhere else like General Discussion. Dixie will be able to handle you guys.

Seriously though, depending on how you read Elba's post, there's nothing malicious about it.

The point is I do not like her to mention my name. I've been trying to ignore her posts. Take a hint, for crying out loud. :roll:

Anyway, you're coming to S.F next year around Feb, right, Dixie? I've made a list of places I can show you in S.F. The list has about ten places so far (not including the restaurants yet). If you visit S.F, I'll make sure when you come back you can say to people, "oh yeah! that place in S.F? Yeah, been there! 8) "

And Lalee, you're sure you're not gonna jump on the plane next year for this get together thingy? :wink:

Hold on hold on, this will be next year, so I wouldn't rush too much into yet. Who knows what can happen in a year? :?

Take your time. The places I have on my list aren't going anywhere, so this is the deal you know you'll get if you come to S.F. :wink:

I have my clothes all over on the floor and if you don't mind that, you'll be more than welcome to join my lovely trashy bedroom.

My Chinese sign is a dog sign, and I'm a female; therefore, yes, you could say I'm a female dog. What does your B stand for now, huh? :lol:

Exactly dear! But let me tell you something. I will try to save money in order to pay my trip to San Francisco and know you personally, like unknownsu. Maybe I could be here for three days.
I hope.

There was an option to visit Shanghai for a couple of days but we didn't go. Those who went, though, said they loved it. They said Shanghai was very much like Manhattan.
