Finally it came to the end of the long north America trip for us. I feel so relieved after a really long 20 hour flight. One thing makes me extreme happy is that the two prints Lotus Pond and Poppy were sold while I was in the planes. I really wish I could have time to concentrate on printmaking. It is such a magical art.
I have been visiting America and Canada for almost 20 days. I have studied in US and went back for numerous business trips and vacations. Every time I went there, I learned and discovered so many new things. We met friends and visit attractions. The trip was full of fun.

|Very touching Princeton Commencement (Empty seats waiting for the class 2012)|
I have never attended a full fledged commencement. This was the first time I attended the 3 day Princeton 2012 Commencement. It was very touching and meaningful experience. I believe wherever the young people go, they will always remember and cherish the blessings from their school expressed in these commencement days.
|My Samsung Galaxy Tablet|
The rest of days we visit Maryland, Seattle and Vancouver. The difference of this trip from the last ones is that we made all travel arrangement in this Samsung Galaxy tablet. We book hotel, rent car and navigate through America airport, streets and places through the tablet. We no longer make phone calls or look at maps.
|The great offline GPS navigating system|
The driving is so much easier with GPS system in the tablet. We download a free offline GPS system called Navfree. Google Maps is normally the software for GPS. But it needs constant contact with Internet. Navfree is an offline system. It doesn't require an Internet connection which my tablet doesn't have in USA.
The Internet bookings all worked smoothly except some small hiccups. But they were also gracefully solved by the service providers. I will definitely use Internet to arrange travel next time.
Last but not least, all my shops are open now. I got some new laptop skin materials. I will try to make a new round laptop skin printing test. If everything is fine, the laptop skins will be available within few days.
