This entry is a hodge-podge of photos that don't fit into a theme but are interesting, at least interesting to the author.
|A banana protector. Amazingly it works very well. Maybe they have these|
in America but this guy hasn't seen one...or be caught using one.
|We visited a Pearl market where they allowed us to select a fresh water pearl.|
Each of us made a guess at how many pearls were in the one we selected. Baba won with '8' in one oyster!
|Yangmei in a Hutong kitchen. A hutong is the community-housing in China. |
She looks very comfortable with that pot.
|The boys in a taxi. With 7 of us in Beijing we had to get two taxis everywhere.|
No seatbelts in the majority of the taxis...
|Caomei. This is what they do when there is nothing on TV. |
There are some benefits of having only 12 channels!
|Grandma in our dining room. Those are moon cakes on the table and cheap beer.|
That liter bottle is about 50 cents.
|The moon cakes are a little like a fruit cake but there are all types of flavors.|
These were a company gift.
|Yugege loves his local hat.|
|Local teenager posing stylishly in her Chinese garb on the great wall. |
She flashed the peace sign afterward, which would have also been a fun photo...
