straw hats and watermelons

Posted on

We eventually took the train back to Yumen, the place where I had left off several days ago (a natural fool).

A car took us to the hotel:

three-wheel taxi

But we weren’t allowed to rest for too long, because we needed things.

We needed hats to fight off the sun:

Robo with hat

And hats to fight off the bees:

We also needed a method of transportation for Robozwerg, and there was apparently only one place in town to get it:

tractor market

The tractor market had petty three-wheel bikes that were old and weak:

the Cucumber

What’s worse: they sold them at high prices and they wouldn’t even haggle.

Punks, we thought, and spent the rest of the day looking around town for an opportunity to get our hands on a decent affordable bike.

But of course there was nothing.

No long faces though!

The supermarket gave us two tasty water melons as a gift to our purchase (we had gotten some groceries and a badminton set):

Two watermelons … for free!!

Life is beautiful.
