digging to America

On the beach we saw an English-Chinese boy digging in the sand with his father.  I couldn’t resist, “Look, he’s digging all the way to America.”  I know that its not possible to dig all the way to China by digging a hole in the ground in America, but as kids we all wondered if it was possible.

As Chinese New Year approaches the hotels are packing out; it seems that more and more people arrive each day…

The beaches were packing out and I could only wonder what this place would look like in a week; we would be in Guilin, but here, there would be fireworks and all kinds of celebrations.  I almost wish we were staying, so we did the best we could relaxing and swimming.  The Amazon Kindle became an invaluable beach tool and we read many books while listening to the sound of the surf and the smell of the salt water and suntan lotion.

Chinese Navy

Just to the east of Yalong Bay where we’ve been spending most of our days enjoying the sun is a Chinese Navy base.  Not sure what kind of ships they have, they are just far enough out on the horizon that I can’t quite make them out – only that they have the classic navy grey paint job.

I saw a ship that looked about the size of a destroyer returning to port this day and later what looked like a tender ship coming in as well.

how they make noodles

 

On one fine morning in Sanya, we decided to go to the pearl district and do some Christmas shoppiing.  We gave a call to Becky who arranged for a car to come and pick us up and take us to the pearl wholesalers and showrooms.  But, before we left, we decided to get some breakfast noodles.  Becky said that she knew a local place that made good noodles.

As with so many of the other noodle shops, this one was owned and staffed with Chinese Mulsim Uighurs.  These friendly people made up noodles with such skill that they made it look easy.  As we ate and talked and laughed, I watched with keen interest as the noodle maker made his noodles and I thought that I would capture a video to share with you all.  I hope you enjoy it:
