Wanda & I …It’s like Thelma & Louise does Shenyang! Haha, not really at all BUT we are two small town girls from Canada… Lunenburg County, Nova Scotia in the big city of Shenyang, China. We’re having lots of laughs and fun and new adventures every time we get together. Oh, We might get a few stares when we walk down the street together, laughing and talking, sometimes arm & arm ( the Chinese way, haha) but that’s ok. That’s half the adventure!
Actually Wanda & I are good for each other, we share a lot of similar interests ( like our love of purses and animals and kids and…lots of other things) and we understand and relate to things a certain way that maybe some of our friends don’t. When we are missing home or just need a pick me up, we are just a phone call and 20- 30 minutes away ( Wanda lives downtown at the Crowne and I am in Venice by the park and river). A morning or afternoon with Wanda is sometimes just what I need!
This morning she picked me up, with her driver Long and we headed to the large Tea Market. Wanda & Curt leave for their summer Home Trip on Friday so Wanda is looking for some special treats to take home.
We had so much fun browsing the shops and sampling some tea. It was a hot day, maybe too hot to be sampling tea…When it was time to buy a few things, Wanda called her little Chinese tea lady, Lily, that works at the market to help. Lily is great, she understands and speaks English. She even showed us her office today and said next time when we need any help to call her.
And what kind of tea is this?
We finished our adventure today at O’Reilly’s with a couple other expat wives, Julie & Claire enjoying some cool salads and chatting about our wonderful lives and adventures as expat wives.
Thanks for a great day my friend. Enjoy your time in Canada, and I’ll be here when you get back!
