Everything, and I mean everything, is available within a five minute walk from the apartment. It's unbelievable. Ruth got a haircut, her backpack sewn up, and some vegetables within a five minute walk of our place.
These guys are all giggly when she arrived along with another friend. The three guys took a look at her little drawing. She had sketched a pixie-like cut. They giggled again.
The wash and cut took 30 minutes and cost 8 kuai. ($2.10 U.S.)
She also had her leather backpack repaired by the guy on the street for 3 kuai. ($0.45 cents)
After that she went shopping for dinner vegetables and noodles. ($3.00 U.S.)
So the total came to $5.55 AND she was back in an hour and a half. Try that in Atlanta Georgia!
You are only as good as your last haircut.
