Getting ready for company...

With company showing up tomorrow night there was one item that we had to take care of, getting a new toilet to replace the one that failed to survive our last guests.

So, we walked down to the small store just across the street from us and selected one of their finest models. It was an expensive 700 RMB (100 USD), but they delivered it for you. Delivery consisted of them walking outside the store and whistling down one of the guys with carts that hang out at the intersection.
He comes in, loads the toilet into his cart and off we go.
And then for an additional 50 RMB (7 USD) they send a guy over to do the installation. It took him about 40 minutes and now we are all ready to welcome our guests...

Happiness is a new toilet
