There aren't many forks to be found here in Beijing. Our tour guide was asking who can use chop sticks and Brian's mom Anne said that try as she may she simply cannot make them work. Never could her whole life. Catherine just replied that chopsticks are a very effective weight loss program. She had us all rolling with laughter. So if Anne looks particularly fantastic when we return we will all have to jump on the band wagon and do the chopstick diet.
Later we were at the Pearl Market and picked up neon colored children's trainer chop sticks for her and grandpa. At dinner at our hotel the waitress asked do the need a chop sticks and grandpa said no and pulled his trainer chop sticks and they started laughing at him and went to tell the other wait staff to look at our table. We are certainly finding things comical here in Beijing!
