A small attempt to pen those precious moments that seem to go by all too quickly. Things that would easily be forgotten.....may they always be remembered....here's hoping this site never crashes. :)

Heading West....

Hallelujah!!! On our journey back home we stayed in Nanning for a night, and made a stop at Pizza Hut. I do believe that was some of the BEST pizza I have had in my life!! After 8 days of Chinese food, I was ready for something a little different. This is my good friend N. She was also excited about eating there. :) These lovely ladies were standing outside of a hotel/restaurant. O and M thought it would be fun to take a picture with them. :)
Our group the last night in Hong Kong. They do a light show on all of the buildings. It was really cool! It was also remarkably clear that night so you could actually see the buildings. Usually it is so smoggy you can't see it all. Notice the newspaper I am holding has roaches all over it. :) They were doing a story on their roach problem. We encountered a GIANT one at one of the restaurants we ate it. I'll spare you that picture. ha ha! The food was really good though. :) You've just got to eat it and go on, otherwise I'm afraid you would starve! ha! :)

Would you eat a fish head for 20 Kuai?

One night at dinner we ordered fish, and of course it came FULL fish. Head and everything. :) So M was kidding around that he was going to eat it. We then told him we would pay him if he would eat it. (He is trying to save up money to buy a new gameboy. He left his in a hotel Thailand and when he went back to get it, it was already gone.) So he will do just about anything to make money. :) We also bought some "art" from them. :) They were so cute. They set up a store for us to buy their color pages. Of course we bought them out. :)Anyway he was successful in getting the fish head down, and we had to pay up. He earned 20 kuai which came to about $2.56 USD. I was quite impressed that he actually swallowed it. He was proud of himself. :) Way to go M!!

Thinking about it......
