Re: Soho show


By the way, Shi is coming to the states too, sometime soon I think. He's going to photograph Mt Rushmore, the big white cross on Oklahoma highway, and elsewhere. The day we met him he just finished a day of photographing TienAnMen.

Hey Sam,

Did you actually get sick in Pingyao? From the food, the water, or do you know? And you were sick enough to be hospitalized? That sounds very bad and scary. How long were you hospitalized? Did you meet Shi?

No no no. We all got ticks, not chiggers, and the ticks on me didn't bite - thank goodness. Chiggers and ticks aren't the same, though they all go for your most sensitive parts. And they itch like h@#$ the same.

The price you have to pay for photographing outdoors in the summer! At least it's not like Sandy and I lying in the hospital bed in Pingyao, China!

We all got chiggers that day, including Sam Wang, Sandy King and myself..... and they aren't a joy!

You can google the little bastards (you can't see them because they are so small), but unfortunately you can't google them away!

Tying your pantlegs and then showering with warm soapy water and washing your clothes after venturing out will help. If they do bit you, I found an oral antihistimine also helps a lot!

Best Wishes,

This question is waaaaay OT, but I need to know - what are chiggers?

The feeling that I got from Chris's post was that chiggers is an illness,
and from Peg (just below), that chiggers is something to look forward to.

many thanks, congratulations, and I hope that the exhibition goes well
best wishes
