CHINA: FACES OF ANHUI. I lost a tooth in Shanghai...bit on a peppercorn in a duck-laced caesar salad...affecting my smile for the rest of the trip...smiling for photos with my mouth shut! Waited for a train...heavy packs...zillions of Chinese also waiting. Then one seat became vacant...walked towards it to try to secure the seat for Denise...the guy next to it smiling broadly to me...beckoning ... Read Full Entry

You know if you weren't the lawyer of a dentist...I do wonder.

I checked with my prosthodentist and he advised the teeth can grow longer to fill the gap, which explains why this chap's middle teeth are longer. A number of the folks in Cheng Kan were missing their middle teeth completely, so dental issues in some rural areas are critical. Fortunately my smile is under repair, so I'll be smiling the pearly whites before you know it.

Great portraits
You know our Ayi was from Anhui province. She didn't return after Chinese New Year. Just gonna have another look through your portraits to see if she crops up.

SHANE
In between gigs in KL...pleased to hear from you. He was excellent company...chattered incessantly as we walked along...couldn't understand a word...didn't matter. Not only were his teeth longitudinally grown to fill the gap...his left ear was decayed...which you can also see in the photo. And he loved having his photo taken...so with pleasure I complied!

You are the master.
Gotta watch those peppercorns, they can be bad news. Once again really great photos and love your ramblings.

THANKS DAVE & MERRY JO
I hope you also heard & enjoyed the music with this blog...my favourite Chinese track...Teng Ge's "Heaven". The way I have posted the video allows you to have the music playing while you view all pages of photos. I believe this is a TB first, as usual posting of video switches off if you go to page 2. This does not happen my way!

Great photo. I was hoping you would add a portrait of yourself minus one tooth for comparison!

You will see I love portraits. I have a number of portrait blogs that excite my soul. Maybe as a member of Travelblog my photography is improving...at least I hope so. I have never had the opportunity to share photos before I joined Travelblog. A number of your photos are very impressive so keep practicing and sharing them.
