As we have seen in a previous post , San Tong tried very hard to put himself back in luck's way in Mexico.

"In the "South of the Border" period of his life San Tong invented many food products such as soy sauce, 5-spiced peanuts, sharks fin exporting, damiana tea, passion fruit champagne, Esther White piglets, thousand-year-old eggs, to name a few. He was always reading and working out formulas. I think his true calling was as a food scientist. "

Finally took time to catch up on the Jue Joe Clan blog. Rich mentioned that some of us visited your grandfather in La Paz. So I thought you might enjoy seeing photos I found of the tea factory that Uncle Guy took when we were there in 1984 . Thank you for doing such a wonderful job documenting the Jue family history for all of us and, most important, for future generations.
(Thanks so much for the pictures , Auntie Estelle ! They are priceless. I really wish I had made that trip too ! Jr. )
