    They're a helluva lot more expensive than what I thought they'd be (I thought they'd be comparable to one of those more common pedicabs, which a friend of mine got for practically nothing a year ago). But I think I could afford one.

    I want a black one with tinted windows and a fake Audi insignia.

    Hutongster cadre, assemble! If I get one, we can hotbox in it.

    Okay so at least now I know the thing I'm looking for is a 全封闭三轮车. I don't think I want to buy new, though. I imagine there's got to be a sizeable resale market, as old folks unfortunately have a tendency of dying without warning.

    TAKE ME TO SCHOOL

    With twenty other kids, maybe.

    Because I want them to know.
