The beads that I bought are called 金刚菩提 (jin gang pu ti) and I bought them because one day my Kung Fu teacher began to talk about this and how to maintain it. They are also called 佛珠手链 (fozhushoulian). I've seen these things all over the place with people using them, holding them and wearing them. Even though they are a Buddhist thing I decided to buy them as these simple beads are a memory from China for me.
I only had 100 RMB left when I went to the airport and instead of buying food I decided to buy this Tai Chi shirt. Since I've now arrived back in Chicago I've been winding down but I've also been writing a list of work I need to do from repairing things, cutting branches, garden work, cleaning storage and auto work. This all means my weeks will be busy before I'm able to settle down in Wisconsin.
