    Yes, wine is very safe to drink....lol. Chinese food is probably the healthiest food to eat so that makes sense. I wonder why Marta's nose was good with all the smog. Any ideas?

    Maybe the toxic chemicals scrubbed out the Weg damage or plugged up the inflammation areas. Good question for her Wegs doctor as to why she felt better there, isn't it.

    Wow Marta, I'm so glad you had such a wonderful trip. I have loved the two times I have been to China and one of those trips was horrific- at least as a Weggie.I suffered brain damage and came back in a wheel chair. And yet even the bad trip was a life changing wonderful event. I figure I would have been sick somewhere, why not someplace I find enchanting?
    I want to go back but the pollution is something I worry about . Thank you for sharing your counter-intuitive experience of this.
    I made a friend in Beijing and went to a Beijing ''hospital" with him . Talk about an eye opener. It permantally changed the way I look at health care. We are very lucky- even as Weggies.
    I love China , and I hope there is more you can share about your experience. Welcome back.

    Great question Dr Phil. I know the second time I was in China my sinuses felt very bad the first day and then seemed to adjust. I don't know why. I then spent an entire week all over Beijing and surrounding areas functioning pretty well. It surprised me. I thought that my initial bad response would persist but it didn't. I was not in great shape at the time. I was still a sick Weggie , partially in denial.
    In retrospect, I probably shouldn't have even traveled there in my condition- but I had a mission. (There was a hospital I wanted to visit and talk about Weg.)
    Then I met some nice people and it turned into a wonderful vacation. I can't really explain it- like Marta says, it goes beyond words.

    Just thought that I'd put all (most) of my China photos somewhere organized, and now that I've done it, anyone can see it.

    So thanks for all your advice and support and here's my little China trip with my daughter's moose taking her place.

    Great slide show and documentation of your trip. Well down. St. Paul Minnesota used to be the Ice Sculptor capital for the USA in their winter festival but the Chinese ones looked outstanding. Looks like a real amazing first class trip you enjoyed. Glad you shared it.

    I'd be careful of that little moose, Marta, he appears to want to being in every photo........steals your bed, photo bombing shots and not being careful around strangers.

    Hehe - excellent job with putting it all together.

    Speaking of China, there was just an earthquake there.
