DAY 9: “GUYS, GUYS! LETS GET A BEER!”
During the first half of our day I got a good taste of what it would be like to be on a reality TV show, not something I am too interested in looking into. We had the amazing opportunity to visit some of the most successful manufacturing brands. While we were touring the showrooms and the factory we were followed by a camera crew and photographers, I felt a little strange taking pictures of the people taking pictures of me.
After a morning of seeing how clothes are really made in China we got to fulfill one of the requests that Leah had from day one, we got our nails did. I feel bad for the poor little Chinese woman who got my gnarley feet and hands. The women who got Leah and Helen got to paint pretty colors with glitter on prepared toes and fingers and the girl who got me probably walked out of work with a hernia. Lets just say that even though I did not get any colors on my nails it still took the same amount of time to sand the rough patches on my feet as it took to apply four coats of different colors and glitters to Leah’s.
During the final stages of my manicure, while my cuticles were loosening up in a bowl of mineral salts and warm water, I was getting a bit antsy (this was the firs time I had ever done all of this) and a group of white men walked by. By the looks of them they were Italian soccer players and on their way to get a beer or two, I practically jumped out of my purple velvet chair at the thought of a cold beer, but I was a little worried that the woman still working on my feet would cut off a toe.
Luckily at diner I got my wish of a cold beer. We decided to have Hibachi, the Japanese cuisine where the chef cooks right at the table. After a meal of mixed seafood and fried rice it was time to head back to the hotel to sleep.
