Solar Eclipse/ Meiwan Fire Pleasure International Ceramic Festival

almost the entire staff hopped on a bus for a six hour ride through the Chinese countryside. The bus was excellent (a.k.a air conditioned) and the journey was through some of the most breathtaking countryside I have ever seen. We went through the Yellow Mountain, mountain range. The highway was incredibly modern and the rest stops were nicer than any I have seen in the sates. We arrived to the "Meiwan Fire Pleasure International Ceramic Festival" in Jaixing. All of the staff and residents that wished to participate brought work to be in an exhibition there and to take part in a raku firing and other ceramic festivities. Jaixing was a great town with some excellent Chinese architecture. The whole festival happened becaused The PWS wanted to travel somewhere to see the total eclipse. Even though it was overcast for most of the eclipse it was still amazing. It was incredibly dark for 9:40 in the morning and we all watched it on the dock of the river, there was a lot of hootin & hollerin
