The woman pictured on the left (aqua shirt) and her mother (not pictured) were also a HUGE help with Shangyi. I was so worried that she was ill. I am very grateful for all of their help. In any case, we are pictured here in front of a silk textile plant. This was one of the tour stops. The things inside were very expensive and no one bought anything. But the tour was very cool. We got to see how the cocoon from the silk worm is converted into silk batting, silk thread, and ultimately silk cloth.
