Xiao Dong and a Monkey

We got out and about again today. We went to Xiao Dong to shop for school supplies. I have never seen so many notebooks in my life. This place was Staples or Office Depot times 10000000. After making our final decisions on notebooks and sketchbooks, we went upstairs to the toy floor.

After walking around for a little bit we came across this one booth (the guy in the picture). He was shouting at us, in Mandarin of course, but he was trying desperately to get our attention. Once we turned around he started playing with the monkey (also in the picture). We stood there for a second looking at him playing with it. He then proceeded to try to get us to come play with the monkey.

Either he was extremely bored, wanted to play with the white girls, or was desperately trying to sell something. Whatever his motive, the monkey wasn’t helping him. I, personally, was creeped out. Needless to say, Kensley and I walked off. Monkeyless.
