    1. I don’t eat oysters from their shells, but I do eat smoked oysters. Had fun trying to get the right answers.

    2. I’m frankly partial towards pearls and anything to do with pearly associations, thanks to a very special relation on the web so obviously I enjoyed learning more about the world being our oyster! Thank you so much Karma for opening up all your new places in the world for our visiting/ vacationing pleasures and at the same time, educating us with fun facts that we absolutely enjoy!

      1. Yes, pearls are absolutely beautiful!! And so fascinating to learn how they come to be. 🙂
        Thank you for your encouraging and kind words, Susan. We hope to see you at a Karma resort soon!
