Chinese communication

Met a lovely couple while hiking Taipei’s Qixing Mountain. We used all the Mandarin we could muster for few hours long conversation down hill and a bus ride to Shilin Night Market.

The couple took a group photo of us and sent to my email. Never received a friendly email in Chinese before (they speak Japanese too)!


He said:

(Oh man so tough!)

My Kindergarten-standard reply (thanks to Google Translate and my new Chinese/Japanese keyboard):


So nice to speak more than a few languages and be semi-literate. We can make more friends and able to express our feelings better.


p/s: The last three words (請保重) made me feel like some Chinese warrior going away for a battle!⚔️
