Kaiping Dialou, Chikan Old Town and a couple of beers

It's a bit late tonight, we have had a long day visiting a world heritage site called Kaiping Diaolou and a couple of villages, one with an old market, as always people are fascinated to see us, we have had our photos taken. Hazel and I ere asked by a few teenagers if they could take our photos, fab. These were very traditional and humble places, rice fields, and old traditional ways> Chikan Old Town really is special, although it does get some tourists we felt like a novelty, so they don't get many. Market stalls line the river, with old fishing boats and street food. I bought my nieces little trinkets made at the stall with little chinese engravings on rice grains. The big hit with us, having had virtually nothing sweet  all week, was a couple making seed and nut brittle with ginger, utterly divine.  I am not so keen on bamboo juice, but watching the fresh bamboo getting juiced was a novelty. 

Getting back into the mighty metropolis od Gungzhou ws almost painfull as the many laned traffic was slow, a late supper and then a couplle of beers down our local who are always pleased to see us.

I am very excited about tomorrow... more of that tomorrow..

Client Testimonials

I personally will always attribute Julia's treatment to be the predominant factor in my extended period of remission from Crohn's disease. Julia is both a trusted friend and therapist and I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking an alternative therapy.

My aches and pains in ankles, knees, hips and lower back disappear and my energy levels are given a very good boost too! It is 45 minutes or so of relaxation in a busy schedule. She keeps up to date with modern acupuncture techniques and has recently returned from a trip to China to experience these new techniques first hand. I cannot recommend Julia highly enough

Christopher Spencer

I consider myself very fortunate to have found Julia's Acupuncture Practice 2 years ago, when I decided to try acupuncture for back problems. After a few treatments the problems were solved. Since I have every confidence in Julia's ability, each treatment is a very relaxing and worthwhile experience.
