Art & Cultural History

The World through #Tech Eyes

The #Tech world – always communicating behind glass, usually with filters distorting the view.  Looking each other face – to – face might help us see one another more clearly.

Charley the Happy Guardian 

“Stone Guardian from the Baekje Era”  –  I’m calling him Charley! He just looks so #happy!  He’s probably singing the song in his head 😜  He looks like he’d get along great with #Mushu the #dragon

#Food Culture!

😂  Nice that #America gets the knife, fork, spoon 🍴 on our art at the Zhengzhou #airport (To be fair – so did #Italy and #France.  None of this #chopstick thing for us! No sir!

btw – chopsticks + glass rice noodles = IMPOSSIBLE! 🍜

Gateway to your Heritage

I ❤ #China!  Driving down the street, ran across this gorgeous old #gate.  So beautiful!

Chinese Country Life

This sight will always remind me of my life here in #China.  One of the #values important to the Chinese is making sure everyone has access to a #job so they can survive.  So instead of using big machines to sweep the highways and streets, they pay the older people a small amount to do the job.  It’s not ideal, but it’s enough to live on.  They are very proud of the parts they clean. And the street sweepers are able to use empty plots of land by the roads to grow Food and Vegetables.  

So every day in my small village (Ok, 600,000 people- but That’s a Farming village here. . . .) you see the elderly driving by on these  tuk-tuks with brooms they made by hand.  Really sweet picture in my memory bank!
