    I was in a shopping center in Herndon that's full of ethnic restaurants AND Chaan Thai Massage. According to their website, they offer clients personalized experiences grounded in traditional Thai-style massage principles. Thai-style massage combines physical stimulation with mindful meditation, recognizing the importance of connecting mind, body and spirit for an exceptional relaxation experience. Massage sessions are conducted on a mat on the floor, rather than a massage table, with the provider manipulating the body in specific ways to stimulate organs and improve flexibility. I'd never heard of this type of massage before but will definitely check it out -- when, and if, Covid is ever under control enough for me to be able to relax while getting a massage!

    Yanzi Noodle House & Taiwan Style Restaurant is located at the intersection of Main Street and Fairfax Blvd in Fairfax. According to their website, they are a Chinese & Taiwanese restaurant (Yanzi Luosifen & Taiwan Style). There specialty is Luosifen. Luosifen (Snail rice noodle) is a Chinese noodle dish and a speciality of the city of Liuzhou, in Guangxi, southern China. Luosifen is a mildly spicy Chinese noodle dish, with a wide variety of toppings of your choice such as pork, beef, duck, seafood, eggs, veggies, etc. They also make fried rice and hefen (fried/soup noodles).

    My husband is not very adventurous regarding food so I will need to grab my daughter to try out this restaurant.

    I posted this in the Monuments and Memorials thread, but it seems it belongs here, too.

    The plaque reads:


    A Jewish immigrant from Lezno, Poland, Haym Salomon arrived in New York City in the years preceding the revolutionary war. He was arrested by the British as a spy. Following his escape, he assisted the Continental Army as a purveyor to soldiers. He provided supplies and financial assistance while traveling with the troops withdrawing from New York. After moving his family to Philadelphia, he became a broker for the Office of Finance under the Superintendent for Finance, Robert Morris. Fluent in several languages, Salomon was invaluable negotiating sale of war aid from European countries, including France and Holland. Haym Salomon donated most of his personal effects and financial holdings to the American Revolution. He died Jan 6, 1785 in Philadelphia, PA.

    Got a picture today, also bought some Sidamo Ethiopian coffee. (Btw, my parents who were not coffee nerds, as few Americans were back then, made a point of starting each day's visit to Expo '67 in Montreal with a stop at the Ethiopian pavilion for the coffee)

    I wonder what they sell there. If it were a restaurant I would recommend their national meals.
