Evidence that I am gradually becoming a different person: I have started to carry a murse. Or a man-purse, if you prefer.
I’ve taken to hauling around a bunch of small crap with me: cell phone, camera, notebook, pen, sunglasses, sometimes a bottle of water. On school days I also carry some 汉字 flashcards, an iPod shuffle, and lunch.
After one day of gray weather and moderate pollution, we’re back to sun and clear air. It’s also warmer, almost 20C (about 70° F). School is out for Christmas break. We’re trying to plan a last-minute trip to Hong Kong next week.
