Great PeterC 2007-06-02 0:34

Kev,
A great situational portrait and a wonderful insight into daily life in China. Any ideas on what the skin and eels are used for?

Cheers
Peter

I don't Peter - I guess they have some use as most things here do.

Yes they find a use for just about everything there. I'm really looking forward to living in China next year it just be a really exciting experience.

Cheers
Peter

I will be in Da Lian studying photojournalism. Its a course run by the University of Bolton but you have the option of studying in the UK or studying at Da Lian university. I'm really looking forward to it. Except i really need to improve my Mandarin!

I know! Only because my dad just bought my mum an eelskin purse. After an initial shock because she thought he said "sealskin" she really liked it.

it was incredibly soft leather - so I assume they use the skins for this sort of thing.

Cheers
