Hey Everyone!
Tonight is my last night in China. Here are some pictures from the last few days. Most of them are from the Yu Gardens in Shanghai. I actually found a piece of carved wood from a roof that had fallen to the ground... so I kept it for safe keeping. ;)

One of my very favorite pictures.

Polishing Pearls. This bowl vibrates and swirls the pearls and peach pits. (These pearls are pink, I wanted her to put white ones in but she couldn't understand me)

Pearl Fields, sorry it's blurry. The bottles mark the rows.

Dinner with Walter, the owner of Lucky Square restaurant. Amazing food and LOTS of it! See how big the lazy susan is? It was packed with food by the end of the night.

Baby & Hong Kong Day #1

Hello Everyone!
I am so sorry for this neglected blog. But, I'm posting now so yay!
If you haven't heard, we are having a baby! I'm about 6 weeks pregnant and we couldn't be more excited! The baby is due in late October.
Right now I'm in Hong Kong for work/foot massages. Here are some pictures from today. The first ones are from going up to The Peak. There's a tram that goes STRAIGHT UP to the top on Hong Kong island and you can see the whole city from there. You can't tell from the pictures how steep it is. It's very beautiful, unfortunately is was all fog this morning so we couldn't see anything further than about 20 feet in front of us, but the rain forest is very beautiful. I also was lucky enough to get a picture with Jackie Chan! ;)
