So one of the hallmarks or Chinese Tours is that you have to go to cerain places to see things to buy. Like jade, coral, and today was pearl. One of the things they were touting was how pearl dust helps with sleeping and is really good on the skin.
So a lot or ladies bought and the Vivian was happy. I think they get a little commissionvor some kind of reward for getting more sales. She was happy because they bought a lot pearl dust today.
So the picture if the people grinding up the pearls on order.
Next place we went to was Alishen, it was a super long drive up the mountain and I got super carsick, even though I ate my carsick pill.
For the last 30 minute of the drive I was leaning my head on my sisters shoulder then lap because I was totally done. I would say I was 80% of the way there. If the road was windy for another 30 minutes I would be toast.
What is so special about this place? They say it is the second highest spot in taiwen. I guess this is the tallest place that is drivable.
It had a lot of nice trees, and a fun hike ans train ride back.
I looked pretty terrible some of the aunties gave me ginger and a Chinese ointment to put on myself. I also had eaten two midol to take away pain. That was all my sister had.
What was terrible about midol is that it is a derelict, so during the 2 house drive down the mountain, my bladder suddenly had to pee. We were only 1 hour into our drive. So I held it for 45 minutes thinking we would get to a restroom soon. However that didn’t happen so I ended up peeing a little in a bottle to survive. Under a jacket and my sister sitting next to me with my backpack up. It was a marvelous pee. And I didn’t spill any even without looking. That was my.most memorable moment today, and how just a little bit helped meclast until the restroom, why didn’t I per it all? I knew I had a lot of pee and I can’t see my bottle, hoping I didn’t fill too much, and it backflowed out.
Now I will sleep early today, because I am wiped out.
