Same Foods, Different Looks ~
Today I received a kind message from Christine~she was wondering if I had returned from China. Well, yes , I am home again and things are almost back to normal. I have missed my blogging friends ~it's going to take me weeks to catch up on all your past posts, but I will certainly put forth the effort. I love reading the blogs~it is nice to be back!
China was incredible........the smells, the myrid of new sights, the foods - a few I could not recognize or get near........that's the beauty of traveling and being a tourist, you are exposed to so many different cultures and you realize firsthand how others do differently what we believe is the"right and only way"...........I will give a preview of things you may recognize, just with a different look..........I may think again about eating duck.........The market photos were shot from one of the relocated villages along the Yangtze River. This town will remain safe from the controversial Three Gorges Dam project that is submerging so many towns and villages along the river bank.
