Most students have gone home for Spring Festival  now and the university is getting like a ghost town. Many shops in Student Street are shut but the chemist was still open so I thought I’d pop in to weigh myself, always depressing, and buy a couple of packets of aspirins, seriously strong and good here. Lao Ban, Chinese for *the boss* greeted me by name and explained that they’d run out of aspirin at the counter so his assistant would have to go upstairs to get some more. I would, unfortunately have to wait so he gave me a cigarette to while away the time…….I do LIKE China. 

One thought on “Popping into the chemist”
