Good Morning, Good Morning…

I’ve been awake since 4am.  I tried all sorts of go back to sleep techniques, but it wasn’t going to happen folks.  So here I am.


Here’s a shot of the moon from my soon to be old office window—it is still so huge and bright.  I’ve never seen that before.

What actually got me out of bed is this:


It’s a boat full of fishing birds.  My friend John told me about them before we moved here and in all honesty I thought he was nuts.  Sorry John.  šŸ™‚  Anyway, it works like this:  the birds are tied to the boat, they go into the water after a fish, catch the fish, and go back to their perch.  Why don’t they go ahead and eat the fish?  Because the fisher-lady puts a steel ring of sorts around the bird’s neck to prevent the fish from going down the chute.  I have to say, I was more intrigued with the fisher-lady’s glistening strand of pearls.  For $1 I could have gotten a private demo of the fishing process, but I passed.  So, there you have it John.  Fishing birds really do exist in China!
