Shanghaied!
« on: February 26, 2018, 10:40:45 PM »


This beautiful lady recently agreed to wear a ring that I offered to her.   :D

We were married in Shanghai, her (and now my adopted) home city.

Just arrived home after a month in the city. Still a bit stunned really.   :o

My heartfelt thanks, @melanie jane, @JanisTX, @AnasaziWrites, and @Erica McPhee.

When I am in Shanghai my family name is Xia Qing Tian, which poetically translates as Clear Summer Sky.   Lei, the lovely lady in the pic, is my sun.  :)

The red image behind is around 18 feet long and is cut out from a single piece of paper. It is STILL a single piece of paper!  Serendipity. We found it in a museum of marriage at a nearby "watertown" called Fengjing.  The picture depicts, as I understand it, the importance of family and the commitment expected of husband and wife to this ideal.
