The Pearl Man

We have a watch guy and now I think it’s fair to say we have a pearl guy! We were in the market and a Chinese man came up to David being very friendly and David was trying to ignore him. But I said,  “Hon, he looks very familiar…he knows you!” Turns out he is the guy we buy pearls from here in Shenyang and we were actually headed to his booth that very moment.

It’s exactly 3 weeks today until we fly home and time to get some pearls. My Mama had a special request. A strand of pearls designed to her specifics…color, style, length…So, we had a little chat with our pearl guy, looked at some pearls and as we waited he made the necklace we wanted. He has such a skill at this. He knows his pearls, how to create nice pieces and is an EXCELLENT salesman 🙂 Haha, He likes to show me his really nice stuff. And just like our frequent visits to see our watch guy, it’s hard to come away from seeing the pearl guy without a new piece to add to my collection!

I guess beautiful affordable pearls is just another perk to living in China!

Adventure For Two

I am from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada and I'm back from traveling with my husband on an expat assignment to foreign lands. 2011-2012 we were in Shenyang, China. Spring 2012- Spring 2013 we were in Resende,RJ Brazil then back to Shenyang, China in July 2013 until the end of July 2014. Expat life WAS amazing! Adventure abounds no matter where we travel to. We really enjoyed the amazing opportunity to live and experience culture and tradition in these places. BUT now we are finished and adjusting to life in our small town in Canada. Our days of travel and adventure are not over.
