Each day I start with a visit to Starbucks. This is my chair and…

They were NOT happy that I took this picture. I thought it would be good advertising to show how busy they were...

This is a Hairy Crab. It is a delicacy in China. It is quite small - perhaps a tablespoon of actual meat in it - despite a lot of work to get it out.

Now, I realize that I am a traditionalist but I think even the most avant garde among you would have trouble with a BLACK Christmas tree!! (And no, they don't have Black Friday here).

    Thanks for these photos! I’m struck by how clean the City is….no litter, no at all!
