Shanghai - New York - home!

I'm back home in California now. I've been living out of a suitcase since Quilt Market, the end of Oct. Don't get me wrong I love the travel and it's all been invaluable. But as we all know; "there's no place like home". Sorting through and catching up after the holidays. I'll be bringing you all up to date albeit belatedly .

Here's some pics of my time in Shanghai.......amazing city...........
shopping in "Old Town"
Had a foot massage (heavenly) and an"ear massage" (wonderful). While I was on the massage table for the ear massage an ear candle was shown to me and the next thing I knew there I was lying on my side with a lit candle in my ear! Had to Google it later to find out what that was about! No harm done, but I don't think I 'll be doing that again!

Hmmm....don't know if I could handle seeing the ducks hanging there. Kinda like in Peru with bags of guinea pigs....just couldn't handle it! The ear candle...so they lit it while it was in your ear? Was it long so the flame was away from your head and hair and stuff? Very interested stuff. Thanks for sharing.

Welcome back, Kathy! Sounds like an amazing -- if likely exhausting -- trip. Thanks for sharing the pics and stories (ear candle? Ummmm, no thanks.)

hmmmmm, yes, I'd like to know about the duck's foot too...was it on YOUR plate, and if so did you eat it, and if so, what part could you eat?

Your trip sounded wonderful, and I'm sure we will all benefit from it with all your artistic talents that you will share! Thank you!!! Ü
