to buy a large vase! maybe 2 ( both not for me) and a flag ( not for me) and… a couple lanterns…YES for me!
Wu ai market has been closed most of Spring Festival but this week it is OPEN FOR BUSINESS once again. Today is the first chance we’ve had to go. Tricia & Alan’s shipment arrived in South Carolina from China and one of their items, a Chinese vase ( 1 of a pair) a gift for their daughter was broken. The joys of shipping things country to country. So, since we are here and can find another or a new pair ,and since some American friends that are from Greenville will soon be packing their shipment, we went shopping. Vases range in size and style, it is so hard to choose. I will want to get a pair of vases before we leave. I know what colour I just have to decide on style. But today we were looking for a particular style and colour and we found it!! Yay, so just one vase and it will match and hopefully not break in the process to get it to the US.
Also friends ( fellow expats) from Bridgewater that were in China and then in Brazil are collecting flags. They found it hard to get a China flag when they were here so we went looking.
And seeing this is the last few days of Spring Festival and the Lantern Festival is on Friday and I LOVE the lanterns, I decided that was one keepsake I wanted, that’s why the lantern’s are for me!
To finish off the day we met our friends Wanda & Curt for dinner. Love, love getting together with them. We had chance to catch up and also chatted about their past sailing adventures ( so much fun) as well as our upcoming trip to Cambodia. Wanda & Curt have done Cambodia and talking to them about it gets me more excited! Just 5 more sleeps…
Good friends, great food, and I’m calling it a day! Goodnight all.
