I’m not big on crowds and shopping.  But She Who Must Be Obeyed and number two son wanted to hit the massive discount shopping mall near Banning.  So I had no choice but to suck it up and enter the world of shoulder to shoulder bargain hunters.

And, just to make things interesting it was near 100 degrees, and oh yeah portions of the mall are being renovated so the throngs walk along narrow boarded off walkways.  I felt like a blood cell passing through a clogged artery.

But, I manned up (?), and shopped my way through the jammed mall.

I get bored easily.  So while Sue and son shopped I began to crowd watch.  I noticed large groups of Asian tourists.  Some with guides happily shopping the discounts.  And then the irony hit me.  I would bet almost all the merchandise on sale was made in Asia and shipped to the California desert for market.   And now tourists who had traveled from all corners of Asia were scooping up the discounted merchandise for the  triumphant return trip across the Pacific Ocean.

Absolutely wonderful example of the world market in operation.  I wonder if I could get a discounted Ford on an Asian holiday?

Good Eating and Table Talk,
