Deep cleaning!!

30 12 2011

Apparently it is a tradition in Chengdu, but in Jin Li Ancient Street area, 锦里古街 (Jǐn lǐ gǔ jiē), there was a special place where for the price of about 20 RMB they would carefully clean your ears, Tāo ěrduo (掏耳朵).

Local “experts” armed with a wide selection of “insertion tools” will astonish you by what they will manage to dig out. And the old woman working on mine I think found special.. “treasures”.. 😉

in Jinli Ancient Street

It was sometimes a weird feeling, especially when using the
instruments in the picture.. and some other time just a little painful!

But after that everything sounded better… more.. Asian!
