Lunch and the Water Buffalo
Our next stop following the farming village was at a beautiful resort for lunch. This was not the same place we stopped on our first trip into China, but it was equally as nice. Lunch was served and quite good, and it brought back memories from that first trip. During lunch we were seated at a round table. In the center was a lazy Susan the waitresses placed bottled sodas and beers on. We each reached forward to take our preferred drink and the man sitting next to me took a long-neck bottle of beer. Having secured his beer he immediately began to wife the top edge, as we often do when drinking from bottles, and he noticed that there was a chip on the edge. He summoned the waitress, pointed to the broken chip and gave her the bottle. She looked the bottle over and placed it back on the lazy Susan. The man again picked up the bottle and emphatically pointed out the broken chip on the bottle's rim. She took the bottle from him and again placed it back on the lazy Susan. At that point he gave up recognizing the fact that there was no way that bottle was going back to the kitchen. It remained on the lazy Susan until we left.

On the way to our next destination, the Memorial Middle School of Dr. Sun Yat-Sen, we passed a number of fields with Water Buffalo roaming free. Anne wanted a picture of one of them so we asked the tour guide to have the driver stop the bus and allow us to take a picture. They cordially obliged, but when the bus stopped and I stepped up to the front to get off and get a good picture of the Ox they refused to open the door and let me out. As you can see by the streaks and spots this photo was taken through the bus window. Not very good but another memory.
