Every now and then, sparked by the telly, we get into one of those awkward discussions. Him expressing his political opinions, me listening and interjecting only with single syllable sounds like hmm or ahh.
Today we watched the cctv reporting on yesterday's APEC opening ceremony. Oh, Obama is in china? I asked. What for? 在北京开了APEC；你不知道了？I am European, I don't care too much about neither Obama nor Xi Jinping. What is this meeting about? 是经济行类的。他们讨论人民币不用美元换外币。这个会议以后中国就做老大。Is it this aggressive proud that I sense in my hairdresser's body language or is it my uneasiness about this newly found self confidence, that throws a transient shadow on my mood... I don't know. but things are changing clearly. Only my hair cut stays the same.
