Well not exactly, but kind of... Daz is off for a few days on an amazing journey to Suzhou, China.
Suzhou is on the lower reaches of the Yangtze River and on the shores of Lake Taihu in the province of Jiangsu. The city is renowned for its beautiful stone bridges, pagodas and meticulously designed Chinese gardens. Since the Song Dynasty, Suzhou has also been an important centre for China's silk industry and continues to hold that prominent position today. It is ranked no. 5 among 659 Chinese cities.
Here are the girls outside of the Beisi Pagoda, built between 1131 and 1162 and is 76metres tall. Hmmmm, love the net, having that sort of info right there at the touch of the button. 659 cities! OMG! When we found out he was going, all my friends and family were like, Wow! China! Are you going too? What a great opportunity! And know what? I have absolutely no desire to go to China! Rather stay home and sew! I've done some travelling in my 20's, lived out of a backpack for long enough, I'm happy here.
He is attending an animation conference over there, like a workshop for international animators to talk about their project, ours being Gracie Lou. There are some big names attending, the guys that did Shrek 3, (I prefered Shrek 2 but hey!), Pixar, Walt Disney, Dreamworks to name a few. Daz feels a bit humble to be taking our little project over. But still, little projects have to start somewhere.
