Travel Theme: Gardens

179

Ailsa of Where’s My Backpack chose gardens as this week’s theme. I visited Suzhou in December and despite the winter cold, the well designed garden still offers repose and remains place for a stroll. Suzhou’s an hour or so from Shanghai and is home to many gardens including this one, the Humble Administrator’s Garden. Many take the “humble” with a grain of salt.

There are dozens more interpretations of the garden theme linked to Where’s My Backpack. Enjoy!

Travel Theme: Temptation

This week’s Travel Theme Challenge from Where’s My Backpack is temptation. A lot of times these baked goods aren’t as delicious as they look, still they draw my eyes. They have a magnetism. I’ve thrown in the camera shop sign because from time to time I battle the urge to buy a more expensive camera. What holds me back is that the Nikon’s I’ve bought have broken in less than a year. Three of them: One a DSRL and two good point and shoots. Another DSRL got stolen two weeks after I bought it. So I don’t have much luck in this department.

Anyway, if you’d like to see more temptations check out Where’s My Backpack.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Perspective


In the midst of winter, a green house offers perspective, in more ways than one.

Week Two: Finished

I’ve finished my second week of teaching in China. The first week was so busy and hectic with new students, new colleagues, three banquets. Oh, I also had a paper due for my library class.

So I’m delighted to finally catch up on blogging. In addition to a hectic schedule, I had an attack of spyware, which meant loads of ads kept annoying me no matter what browser I used. I’ve gotten an anti-spyware program, which seems to be doing its job.

In Jinan there have been some changes. Louis Vuitton has opened, as have two Burger Kings and a Subway. Also, our new tallest building (maybe 50 floors) is coming closer to completion. Oh, there’s a new food store with lots of foreign food and a lovely manager, who speaks English and is eager to please. That’s globalization, China style.

One of the new teachers has come with his wife and  6 month old baby. The baby is an absolute hit wherever he goes. Monday they came out to eat and the restaurant owners were head over heels.

I’ve gotten a new air purifier and it’s working day and night. It was a wise acquisition (Christmas present). The soot it’s collected is black. Yikes.
