My second regular saturday reblog is for the lovely Tess Karlinski who is our tour guide for an extended trip to China. Today Tess is onboard the cruise ship on the Yangtze and it is the night of the Captain’s cocktail party.. what a hoot.. there are some real gems in this post (and I don’t mean the lettuc on the buffet) Tess’s description of the captain is priceless as is the throwaway line about men only dancing with a gun to their heads… Anyway, these posts have saved me thousands in airfares and hotels, not to mention some of the inconveniences of travel in China.. but I have reaped all the benefits through the wonderfully descriptive posts and photographs. I do #recommend that if you have not been following this series you head over and catch up.
(Photo shortage. Nothing to take pictures of and I forgot to ‘preserve’ the buffet. Pictures next post.)
