First, a reminder that today is the last day you can participate in my first ever Giveaway. So if you have not yet joined in the fun, please do so now. The giveaway ends tonight at 11:59 pm CST!
Now, back to business! It's Wednesday, which means it's time for Mel's Show and Tell!
In the Spring of 2008, my Babe and I took part in a Ha.bitat For Huma.nity trip to the Yunnan province of China. For those of you who like to travel, and would like to volunteer on an international trip, Habi.tat for Human.ity's Glob.al Vil.lage program is excellent for volunteering your time and experiencing a local culture. They take you to places most tourists never see.
On one of the Sundays we were there, our local guide took our team to a local open air market. It's one of those markets where the locals do their grocery shopping, not one put up for tourists. Needless to say, it was quite an experience. There were a lot of very interesting items there. Here is just a selection of items that I thought you may find interesting.
Bundles of tobacco (the Chinese love to smoke)
Another type of tobacco
Tobacco and tobacco bongs.
Red hot chili peppers (the real thing!)
Pick your own white duck.
Black ducks all lined up
Doesn't that just make you appreciate your nice, clean grocery stores?
Ha ha..... Now that I've grossed you out, go check out what the rest of the class is showing.
