$3000? That’s a bit much for a deposit…

And so I negotiated with her, she offered $2500 and then eventually $2000 at which point I realized this was not going to be anywhere close to reasonable and I accepted, thinking this must be how they do things with foreigners in China.

"Ok, RMB2000, 2000 will be ok" she replied.

…at which point my mistake was clear. RMB3000 is ~$500, perfectly normal for a 4 night hotel stay.

I apologized, but still paid RMB2000 for my room’s deposit.
