Ava, JD and I went to the Grand Opening of our friends' new Tea Shop yesterday. We had only intended to stay an hour or so, but it turned out we were the only ones there, so we stayed longer to show our support. The owners, "Dancing Lady" and her husband, showed us a tea ceremony and we were offered tiny cups of different flavoured teas. I managed to switch to a cup of coffee after a while. Having lived in a major tea-growing part of China, I must have seen a dozen tea ceremonies before and I really don't like the taste anyway! As the Chinese chatted together, JD and I got increasingly bored and ended up making various pictures with the nut husks. Something to do!
