  1. A couple of highlights from us. In Jeju our guide was Sunny - - and her name fit her perfectly. The best English speaking guide we have had on this journey plus she finished the day with a beautiful song (great voice). Our tour was the Tea Cluture and Market. I ended up being the one to prepare the tea at our table - (it is all set up for a right handed person - -of course I am left handed) - and managed to pour without a spill - -amazing to me!! Next we donned Korean wedding gowns as if we were getting married. Beautiful silk and funny hats. (I don’t know how to upload the pictur
  2. Catching up and wanted to share our fantastic tour in Tianjin. We took the Historical Heritage tour (8 3/4 hrs). Began with seeing the last emperor’s house called Jing Garden. A video of Puyi’s life, his excile from Beijing and influence from the Japanese was shown. He was excited to the Soviet Union for 10 years and upon his return he was rehabilitated and worked at a gardner. The concubine revolution started during his time in Tianjin — first time a woman ever left the emperor - -From there to the museum at the beautiful Astor Hotel - underground and filled with antiques.
  3. Funny—you made me look and I found the same picture in our room!! Our beginning was a little different - -our plane was delayed two hours in LAX so we didn’t get to the ship until after 7 pm!! Jet lagged and had an 8 hours tour in Shanghai which was fasntastic yesterday. Today was the cruise critic meet and mingle which I attended for all of 5 minutes and simply said hello before joining hubby at a bridge class. Because of our late arrival we have a muster drill at 4;30 today. The sun is shining and it feels wonderful to just relax. Here’s to a wonderful trip.
