I used to play a lot of ping pong. I was never very good… but I had a lot of fun with it. I’d like to think this is the Chinese version of me. One important note, however: I am not nearly this skilled.
Daily Photo – Young Girl in Chengdu
This is a five-year-old girl who arrived early at a Chinese opera so she could be dolled up for the event. I was here for about 15 minutes taking photos of her while I had an extremely broken chat with her mom and dad. After a bit of work, I got the mom’s WeChat and sent her the photos. WeChat is kind of like the Facebook Messenger of China. Anyway, I often wonder why parents subject their kids to this sort of thing… it’s clearly 100% for the amusement of the parents. Well, 99%, as the other 1% was me. Nothing wrong with it, I suppose… 5-year-old kids have very little idea what the hell is going on, anyway. As long as everyone was happy and kind around them all the time, it’s all okay.
