Dear Olympic Sailors

Dear Olympic Sailors,

Congratulations on being selected to represent your countries at the 2008 Olympic Games in China. While you are there I'm sure you will want to take the time to experience Chinese culture and learn more about this fascinating country.

For example, you might want to try out the latest skin treatment becoming popular in China... allowing fish to eat your skin.

According to this article...

Beauty-seekers in Southern China are soaking themselves in pools filled with this type of small fish that eat human skin:

Garra Rufa, a type of small tropical fish, also nicknamed Chinchin Yu, nibble fish or simply doctor fish, are put in hot springs. As they can live and swim freely in at least 43-degree-hot waters, they are naturally used for the treatment of skin diseases in such spas.

When placed in the spa, these fish can feed themselves on the dead cells of the human body, since they only consume such cells, leaving the healthy skin of the human body to grow. The whole process is reportedly free of pain. It won’t hurt and the bather might feel a pleasant tingling on his or her skin.

Gives a whole new meaning to "Fish on Fridays".

Well done Edward. Look for more cryptic day-count clues in the days to come.

As China increasingly is seen as a growing business power, interest in learning the Chinese language had rocketed; it is become more and more important to learn Chinese.
