China China China China.
This is one of the times my brain screams out "PETA!!!! PETA where ARE you?!!!" China desperately needs PETA.
Thanks to my friend Christa for finding this little guy and FREEING him - I can share with you the trend in China - or Beijing at least - to have a pet. IN a key chain. Turtles, fish, and even newts.
My friend Katharine asks a good question. How do you feed it?
Apparently you don't? You just let them slowly suffocate and die?
Gross. This is gross on so many levels.
**Please no political comments! (don't want me to get in trouble right?!)
Anyway - I just returned from a trip to Xi'an (again).... this time we had the super special VIP tour that is only given to special people, such as heads of state and CEOs of major companies. My friend's husband is one of these special people and we were able to stand right next to the Terracotta warriors. Very very cool. Then we went onto Hong Kong - just a few words: COOLEST CITY EVER. Like, in the world.
I love Hong Kong.
Pictures to come.
