I Can/Can't Afford it (...得起 & ...不起） Qing Wen
China can stun you with prices, on the low and the high end. A Porsche in China will cost you twice the price of one back home, while a brand new Trek bike, less than 1/2. A cup of coffee can run you close to ten bucks (with no refills of course), while a DVD will cost less with a feature film on it than a blank one would from Best Buy. Like everyone else in the world, the Chinese love to talk about what they can and can't afford, yet they are just a tad more open. With this versatile pattern, you can now join in on half of the conversations in China.
