my stuff

Greetings from the Great Wall! I told you I'd see the cultural sites and not just spend my time shopping. The bandanna from The Hill-Side is amazing and has totally come in handy on this trip. The selvedge chambray is super soft and I love the plum violet traditional Japanese dye. This woven shirt from Obey was a pleasant surprise. I was wary of the transition from graphic arts to clothing, and to be honest, I didn't know it was from Obey when I tried it on in the store. But I've worn it quite a bit and the weight and fit is perfect for spring/summer. These camp shorts from the Gap are pretty good too. I like the exposed pocket stitching and the length is nice. These Campers have been with me all over the place and thankfully are still going strong.

Tomorrow is the Temple of Heaven and hopefully a PLA surplus store. Then on to Shanghai and hopefully Tokyo. Woo hoo! Oh and by the way, if you get the chance, come to Beijing, not for the shopping but for the duck. So good. I didn't get any pictures of it, it was too good to wait, but I promise it looked as good as it tasted.

I have similar pics at The Great Wall. Did you climb up very far? I like the Obey plaid shirt!

Obey is into textiles now, really? Well, I like it! Perfect traveling/walking-the-Great-Wall-of-China gear.

I can't imagine how delicious the Peking Duck is over there. Oh goodness. I just drooled on my keyboard.
