Chinese supermarket

The Chinese mall has been open for over six months and it's starting to show its wear. While people had initially gone there to gawk at the curtains and the matching bedroom sets, few people go there now. Around the fringes of the mall, shops selling heavy machinery and office furniture have sprung up. At night, the shop people sit in a small park surrounded by weeds, cooking their dinners outside. I noticed the other day that a row of Chinese restaurants has opened up. Might have to try them out some day. I'm not sure where people sleep - possibly in their stores. Some new row houses have sprung up, like mushrooms or bad dreams, while people weren't looking overnight.

Well, I was there to buy a frying pan and Chinese toilet paper. In support of globalization...
