Photo a Day in June Week 3, People and places that have touched our lives

Funny how a picture can transport you back in time.
Back to an alley in Shanghai, a beach in Croatia, a festival in Germany.
Another week of rekindled memories, moments in time relived.
We have been so fortunate to have the opportunity to travel to so many
incredible places and be touched, even for a moment by the people on our expat journey

The prompt of the day is in red, the photo and description is my take on the prompt.

On the Streets of Shanghai
In China, work is very manual as labour is cheap and plentiful. 
This happy guy was very masculine, as he caught and then tossed bricks in his little 'chain gang' 
on a building site! He was so busy smiling for me that he didn't catch those bricks... 
they hit him and he laughed it off! Masculine!

Miao Sister Festival, Guizhou, China
Beautiful, silver hat - A head dress at the "Sister's Festival" in Guizhou, China. 
I had to choose a photo from China today as it was three years ago to the day that
 we left and our lives in Shanghai came to an end.

Cavtat Bay, Dubrovnik, Croatia
Begins with "C"
Cavtat bay, Croatia. Just Glorious!

Magdalen College, Oxford, England
Inside Magdalen College, Oxford, looking out from the verandah.
I loved living close to this beautiful city in England.

PJ's on the streets of Shanghai
A casual stroll to the shops in your PJ's and rollers in the hair!

Shanghai Bride
All dressed up
All dressed up in her wedding finery...and a pair of jeans.
In China, they often have the Wedding photos taken months before or after the big day 
and will don the dress over their normal clothes. I would see brides wearing sneakers as often 
as I saw people in their PJ's

Fasching Festival, Wiesbaden, Germany
The city of Wiesbaden put on quite a performance at "Fasching" this year.
I am so going to miss the German Festivals when we leave. So much colour and fun. 
We have been to China, Croatia and England in my archives this week...
best to finish with Germany, my host country!
