Answer to the Guessing Game

Many of the kitties have been very close in their guesses. The closest answer is from the furries at Alasandra's.

OK, my SS is going to Yunnan in southwestern China where recent findings of a submerged wall in Fuxian Lake opened up further possibilities of investigation into the Dian culture which flourished over 2000 - 2500 years ago.

This culture left some fabulous relics in its burials, the most famous being highly decorated drum shaped cowrie containers.



However, no written record of this culture exists except from what is known from Chinese historians nor are there any architectural remains.

My SS will be away for a month from mid March. I will be staying with gran to keep her company. The costume that I was wearing is that of one of the minority tribes now living in that region of China.

Sounds awesome! I'm fairly sure that SS's real name is Lara Croft. Hope you have fun with your gran, Momo!

What a fantastic opportunity. It sounds fascinating, and must be so exciting to go there with the intent of finding out more about people who have been 'lost'. We hope SS has a wonderful time:)

How very exciting for your person. However she needs to stop always going on these trips and spend lots of time with you!

Cliff and Olivia said...

The humans say they would leave us too for a month for an opportunity like that. We don't know what to say about that, but that thing surely looks impressive.

We are so sorry you are abandoned AGAIN! Will that field trip get your SS a job??? We sure hope so!
It seems all the humans are very very bad with helping us at the moment - we are not blogging or visiting and it looks like Sassy and Opus and Ruis sites are abandoned too....
We will have to do something about this unacceptable situation!!!
