A new couple with a 1-and-a-half year old little girl moved into the apartment next to ours last week. Outside of two people we know from the American embassy, they are first friends we have made in our apartment building. In an effort to help them become more familiar with the area, Cara helped the wife and daughter take a taxi to Carrefour, a large French chain grocery store, today. However, because this is Beijing, the taxi driver took us to the wrong place. It was still Carrefour, but about twice as far away. Was still a good try though.
To make this a little more challenging, our new neighbors are Japanese. The wife speaks a little English and more Chinese. Communicating has been interesting.
