A look at the world through my eyes. Sometimes funny, sometimes serious, sometimes somewhere in between.

Gifts from Around the World
Bamboo charcoal air filter
One of the benefits of my job is meeting people from all over the world. I help many of them get visas to come work at the university. They are the nicest people in the world. So many of them bring me small gifts that I display them in my office.
This is my most recent addition from a sweet young lady. I need to make sure and give it sun every month but it is supposed to remove the toxins from the air. Maybe I'll be a better breather.
This is a collection of items from China, Russia, Great Britain and Scotland. I also have my Magic 8 ball but it lost all its fluid so I can't give any advice. Don't you just love the sheep and loch ness monster?
This is from the Chinese Academy of Science. We hosted an international event and they brought this along with several other items. I have a necklace at home also. They are supposed to be hosting the recipricol conference in 2012 so I hope that I am able to go to it.
