It can sometimes be hard to remember that things like dead fish hanging from trees in the middle of busy streets is not actually normal. The photo would have been better but I was bullied out of the way by a lady on a motorbike. There are so many things like this though, dead fish in trees, live crabs on the floor, doves in big nets, chickens in boxes, chicken feet in vacuum packed bags. One of my students asked me today how I was adapting to life in China and at times like this it seems like its been the most normal thing in the world. Its bizarre but you just stop noticing all the things that to any newcomer would seem odd. Well that's not totally true, you still notice and maybe giggle a little to yourself but then you just let it pass by as some more of the crazy China scenery.
