So it wasn't so much that three bunches of flowers was 12 kuai. Or that the flowers smelt divine. It was that when I was watching two girls bargain for flowers they looked up and asked if they could help. When I asked them how much they were paying and then I said I'd get the same - those girls without hesitation made sure the flower seller charged me the exact same price for three bunches. And after they were long gone he took my 12 kuai without a question. And as I walked home with my beautiful flowers underneath the skyscrapers, I thought...I like it here.
