Chinese Scenery

Let's go shopping! We'll need some cash. Chinese money is called yuan, and the coins (equivalent to dimes, but worth less) are called jiao. Jiao also come as bills. In slang yuan are called kwai and jiao are called ma.

Here's the fruit market, just a few steps from school.

I am anxious to see what you buy. Certainly grapes and tomatoes are the same whether you buy them with Chinese or American money, but it's the adventure I suppose. :)
