The average shell carries about 24 of these little jewels. I guess I've watched too many cartoons where there's only one. The wives at home had told their guys that they wanted lavender pearls. I'd never heard of them.
We arrived at the Pearl Factory and watched a demonstration where we learned all about them and then had a chance to buy all we wanted. They're beautiful, but after watching that first image LIVE, not for me. Plus, I rarely wear lavender.
P.S. I'm not ignoring you guys. I have giardia. Ugly. And I think I got it drinking that tea on the second to last day that was just kinda warm. It occurred to me later that it probably hadn't been boiled properly. I'm sick and frankly, it sucks...except for the weight loss. To come home with all of these stories and not one drop of energy to tell them is a bummer. But hey, I'm tryin', ok?
P.P.S. If you haven't entered for the drawing for something from China, just add your name in the comments. I'll pool everyone that's entered into one big pot and give you something cool that I brought back. Promise. Soon, mkai?
