Shanghai

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.

Congrats on the baby guys. It looks like Katie is having fun in China. Maybe one day I could go there. I would love it.

Ok, you need to give a run down of what you actually did there and why on earth you had to go all the way to china to do it... none of this vague "I went there for work" crud. :o) I need details, honey. Regarding the comment you made about matthew getting the rock stuck in his forehead.... I don't see how you couldn't laugh at something like that.... I also laughed so hard I could barely breath when aaron fell running up the stairs at magic mountain and broke his thumb... on our honeymoon... I bet that was a rude awakening for him. True schadenfreude in action.
