Asian Squat...
My dad and sister are thinking about coming to visit me in China before I leave this summer. They were worried about being in shape and keeping up with me and my backpack. I just laughed and said that what they should really be worried about are the toilets. I suggested that they practise the "Asian Squat" before they come out, as it's essential for all the toiletpaperless squatters. Here's the video I suggested they watch to help them get on the right track.

Cute son. Cute, son. Cute son!

It is actually your sister that is worried about keeping up...

She is afraid of being left behind in a burning hotel again, with weird looking people in metal helmets running through her room.

Love, an aged man.

It is incredibly funny.
But I remember being in Hong Kong. I was waiting for the bus, and my legs were tired so I did the Asian squat. I soon realised I was the only person squatting, unlike on the Mainland where I would be eye level with a few people. In Hong Kong you just don't see that many people squatting, they seem to prefer to stand.
