The Birds

You know you've lived in China for a while when you actually pay money to have pigeons land on your daughter.

We spent the weekend with dear friends on the coast of China.  Today we went to "Dove Park"  aka Pigeon Park.  For less than a dollar, you can enter this fenced in area, give the unenthusiastic man your money in exchange for some corn to feed the pigeons.  Then you stand there and let the pigeons land on you.
Yes,  visions of the Alfred Hitchcock classic "The Birds" did enter my brain.  Also thoughts of bird flu.  But clearly, Elisabeth  and her friend had fun.

I'd be afraid to get messed on ... :)

But it does look like fun.
