#Didi Adventures!

1 Oct

Gave the poor Didi driver (Uber’s alternative) a heart attack today. Guy and his wife/girlfriend picked me up. Took us forever to coordinate the pick-up spot. I could here him ranting about “xxxxx Didi xxxx waijiao xxxx Didi.” Looked at my phone and realized it was only their 2nd time being Didi drivers. 0_0 And they got the crazy foreigner LOLOLOL Poor dude. My mind was running the conversation through to something like “this is just my luck! Why, we just did it, and we got the foreigner! Why me!?!” I didn’t know how to tell him it’s his luck because it’s my luck. I was only taking Didi because I left my jacket at the store and this was my second trip of the day πŸ˜› -_-

He got so turned around he drove past my street, figured out that construction has blocked off all streets for the next 2 miles, had to turn around and go back. Couldn’t find the road. . . . . Girlfriend is hysterically laughing at him while trying to explain she knew only a “little English. English – – – think too difficult.” Had me laughing too. I think he wanted to kill us both by the time the trip was over. Sweet heart that he was, he did try to carry my waters home for me though.

Gave them good stars πŸ™‚ ❀

#Tech Smart – Using #Didi in China

11 Aug

SUCCESS! I finally tried using #Didi for the first time this week! In the US, we have #uber but China has a program called #Didi as their alternative. πŸš—
I really enjoyed it actually! You put in your pick-up spot and destination. It finds a driver and tells you how long till they arrive, a map tracking their car coming to you, their license plate #, and a car description (i.e. black Toyota). They pick you up, take you to the destination, trigger the receipt – it is automatically paid for via #alipay or #wechat and you rate their service.
By the grace of God they Actually now have an #English versionof the app which lets you type the names of places in English or #Pinyin. Super convenient!!
I do so love #tech advancements 😜
