We spent about an hour walking around Chinatown. That was more than enough…
Lots of things floating in jars, lots of dried things in baskets, lots of hanging things tied in bunches of string, lots of wonderful smelling food, lots of cheap souvenirs, watches, wallets, handbags, flip flops and jewelry.
Origami folded money.
My name in Chinese, and no I wasn’t going to pay $5.99 for it so I cheated and just took a picture of it instead. My Bad!
Then there were these.
After a brief internet search I found this out about them. They are called The Beckoning Cat. Who knew!
Well that was Chinatown in a nutshell, but in Chinatown they dried the nutshell’s and then grind it up and serve it as a medicinal tea which promotes long life and increased vitality!
再见 zài jiàn - good bye in Chinese!
