Day 5 Nanjing
This morning my uncle brought over his grandson, my... nephew? once removed? What is the English term for the son of my cousin? Any way, the little tyke is almost two years old and cute as buttons. He's got a cute squeaky voice, and he looks a lot like his father.
My uncle & aunt, it turns out, has been doing pretty much all of the raising of the kid, who more or less lives with them rather than his parents. His parents are all pretty busy with work and stuff - my cousin apparently has like a work commute that's over an hour long (one way). My uncle & aunt though are both retired so they have plenty of time to take care of the kid. So yeah. That's a thing here.
The kid apparently likes to play with plastic bottles (empty of course) and to tear things up. He's not 100% potty trained yet, but does have a decent vocabulary.
In the afternoon, I took a short walk around the block (into Southeastern University and back) with my grandfather. Took my phone along and tried to detect any open networks. Alas, there was nothing that was open, connectable, and didn't require a guest login. Bleh.
