Yes, long overdue

My patient adoring fans (such humor is certainly required at tis point),
Apologizes for my delay in posting my travel blog and although I have the utmost of free / available time, I lacked in keeping touch due to a disappointment in my current destination. Tis NOT (correction from sent email) what I truly expected or informed... well, yes, Dalian is a city within wonderous development, but sights of Traditional China I hardly witness. There have been a few outside street and indoor markets I've wandered, but not really like the country. One will marvel at the structure and continued building of highrisers in the city. They are becoming and taller in which the top floor can almost touch the heavens. Almost reminds me of Metropolis.
Have taken photos here and there which my photo sight would appreciate, nevertheless, the weather remains brisk and cool, the sunshine is what keeps me sane and conquers my winter blues. There is a lack of ballroom halls, however, there are many shops of the sorts, electronic (which I have purchased a few items), clothes (fashion clothes here is NOT of my likings for I certainly do miss a second hand store to stylish wardrobe for the mature woman... as well as dressing in sweats in feeling comfortable), amazingly plenty of coffee shops, LOTS and LOTS of restaurants, in truth, I can eat so much (since I do have a kitchen and not a cook) & trinkets aglore ... little nick nacks can quickly increase in weight and my suitcase's weight allowance is on constant watch.
I'm testing my new camera, Nikon P100, thus some of my photos are not at my best or as I would like for I'm becoming accusomted to its handling. Nevertheless, I do hint appreciation of what I do post for these are photos taken live rather seen through a magazine upon waiting several weeks or months for publication.
Today is Friday in which I'll review my lesson plan for tis weekend, usually, I've already completed by Sunday afternoon and on Wednesday mornings, gather materials for the new coming chapter lesson.
