Instant shade

Today we purchased ourselves some happy umbrellas to help with the heat. Almost everyone here uses umbrellas to provide them just a small patch of shade. It's amazing that it does help just to have that little bit of protection.

Not much else going on this weekend, we toured a little and spent about 3 hours walking up into the new downtown. We stopped at a little restaurant that didn't have the nice pictures that we almost came to expect, so we didn't really know what we were ordering. They sent over the one man in the restaurant that knew any English and he tried to help us. We ended up getting a fish that was just doused with hot spicy peppers, it was excellent. We flipped through our translation book to find "chirder jern syung" which is "That was delicious." They couldn't quite understand us, so when we pointed to the Chinese symbols and asked the waiter how to pronounce it, he just read back the English to us "delicious". Ah, thanks for clearing that up for us.....
