I was over the moon! Finally, I was on my dream vacation to China. A place I wanted to visit all my life.
My first order of business was to go shopping. So many fabulous bargains can be found in China.
I walked into the shoe store and two gentlemen came over to assist me immediately. They were dressed very well and both were so nice! In fact, they even talked to me in English. I was so surprised!
I asked to try on a pair of red high heels and they immediately brought me the shoes to try on. When I put them on my feet I felt like I was in another world. A world I have never been in before.
Suddenly, the shoes became glass slippers. One of the men turned into a prince and the other man turned into a mouse dressed as a coachman. What is this? I was in the Cinderella fairytale!
I quickly took off the shoes and ran out the door!
Fairy tales belong in story books.
