Today I went to one of my American friend's house with Dixie. He is Dixie's friend and called Goerge. I met him at the Tybee school this year and he came to my porcelain painting seminar this time. Yesterday he called Dixie and asked her if we could visit himthe following day.
After one hour drive we arrived his house. He lives alone and has been collecting antiques. We went to a restaurant to eat lunch. The restaurant was a buffe style and I ate "yakisoba" (it's fried noodle with some vaggies and soy sauce taste.) there. It reminded me of Japan. I still have 5 days left, but I started missing my family, Japanese foods and Japanese language. So, I enjoyed it.
After lunch, we went to the Evelyn Burrow museum. Evelyn Burrow was a Southern bell and donated a lot of her collections to the museum. We can see her collections for free. I saw some really wonderful her collections from some European porcelain factories there.
George invited us to his house because he knows I'm a huge fan of antiques and also have been collecting some of them. His house was full of collections. He seemed to enjoy showing his collections to us. He gave me some of made in occupied figurines. Since I've been collecting the stuff, I was very happy. He also showed some really pretty Nippon stuff. He told me that Nippon stuff was older than occupied stuff. I'm thinking that I'd love to collect Nippon from now on as well because they are also from my country!
In the evening, Dixie's friend, Lidia took her friend to Dixie's house and showed some other made in occupied Japan stuff to me. I bought three figurings from her. I'm glad that my made in occupied Japan collections are getting bigger.
