Ying Ge Trip | Part 1

 We made a trip to Ying Ge with our friend Anita and her family...it was a lot of fun. If you want handmade pottery, or just any kind of pottery or dishware, Ying Ge is the place to go, it is about a 1/2 hour scooter ride from where I live. It is a pretty cool place, not to mention, there is a lot of good food there too. I tried hot fresh squeezed orange juice for the first time in my life there.

This is an old pottery kiln.  I think they fire it up once or twice a year to keep it in good shape.  It was like a long tunnel.

These are singing tea cups, they are pretty cool. If you have a little bit of tea or water in the cup, you can hold the base, dip your finger in the tea or water and circle the rim with your finger and the cup will sing. They had all sorts of different sizes which sang different notes.

This is where you try the tea at this particular shop. We didn't try any this time.
