Just got back from a 3 day stint in Hangzhou, China. The self-proclaimed "Most Beautiful City in China ", as one local TV commercial proudly stated. It is, indeed, a beautiful city, and the people seem to have more of a country disposition than in most other big cities in China. Well, except for this one guy who jumped the taxi cue last night at the hotel, and when confronted by these two pint size featherweight girls proceeded to get in their faces, tell them he was going to do nasty things to their mothers, and shout numerous other horribly shocking things, before jumping in the cab and flicking his cigarette in one of their faces. I guess its not a real trip to China unless at least one crazy thing happens!
So, I was supposed to do 5 shows in 2 days, but it was cut down to 4 due to the much anticipated appearance of the Hong Kong artist Miriam Yeung. It was mayhem! They ended up canceling our first opening show because the chief of police was afraid there was going to be a riot. Kind of sad since I'm sure some of these people traveled quite a distance to see their beloved idol. This picture below doesn't give the chaos justice. So, just as soon as Miriam came and sat in the VIP waiting room, she left. Never made an appearance. Escorted right back out the back door. Later I found out the crowd got so rowdy that they were pushing over display cases, velvet ropes, and any small women and children in their way. Total insanity!
Well... excluding the cute Miu Miu shoes that are mine :-)
So after seeing only the hotel and the convention center, which are next door to each other, for three days, I was so excited about going out to dinner to eat hairy crabs on my last night (sorry no photos). I LOVE HAIRY CRAB! I love it almost as much as I love hot pot. Yes, hairy crabs are heart attacks waiting to happen, but I don't care. It's worth it!
And as I was going to the airport, reflecting back on my short but sweet trip to Hangzhou, I was left with one last kooky image.
