Early June takes

The weather has been great lately. All I want to do is sit outside and drink beer!!!

May but feels like June

So hot, time flying, can’t catch it!


Cool field and track I randomly discovered a block away.

I did “cupping”! It doesn’t hurt, just feels when when it’s happening. The marks are almost gone now!IMG_1171

After work – well earned beer.IMG_1179

Blurry pic, but so many great PJ’s walking around. It seems after 5pm that’s the only thing people of a certain age wear. Makes for great people watching. IMG_1181

Days go by so quickly

Really! Where does the time go?

At SIAL – a food+bev trade show

IMG_1116Real IMG_1120 IMG_1121

My favorite neighborhood stop – street seating only.IMG_1128 IMG_1129 IMG_1130

Street views – no signs on the sidewalk this week b/c of government/political meetings. China = interesting….IMG_1131 IMG_1132 IMG_1134

At a banquet/event to celebrate the opening of a wine shop in Jiaxin, Zhejiang province. Saw way too much good wine being ganbei’d….=drinking a glass of wine in one gulp. And then doing it again. And again. And again.

The trifecta: nice wine, coconut milk, and green tea. IMG_1145

This cat was just snoozing. It’s not dead, just a silly sleeper.IMG_1146 IMG_1147 IMG_1148

Another street viewIMG_1149

My size.IMG_1152

Bling hats – the tackiest outfits I’ve seen in awhile..which means like four hours.IMG_1155

Views – from the 21st floor. My floor.IMG_1156

In Pudong. It’s like a different city over there. Gorgeous sky this day though.IMG_1157 IMG_1158 IMG_1159 IMG_1161

And the shake. Dogs of Shanghai. So many!  IMG_1164

Here and now

Working – teaching and interning:

This is during break time – that’s why they’re all on their phones or not in their seat.

IMG_1094Doing: the yoga (trying at least).

Eating/Not eating – that’s mayonnaise on that fruit….gross!


Drinking – fav neighborhood place: Staxx (and Kyle’s socks, ha!)
