The ship arrived in Lyon after lunch; we boarded a bus and toured around with a stop at one of the last family-owned silk scarf manufacturers.

They use ~20-40 'screens' per design, they mix the paint with arabic gum so it's thick enough to stick to the silk but still thin enough to spread. They staple the silk to the workbench, which is long enough for, um, 6-8 scarves to be ...

In fact I hadn't been for the past few days and I think he got the idea that I wasn't going to if it was him calling. So he started on Facebook. And seriously he wouldn't stop bombarding me with messages and pleas to take him back. So I blocked him on Facebook. Apparently he was at the hostel that night watching a soccer ...
