food, when i first started coming here 9 years ago, scared me.
not initially, because i never considered myself a picky eater
and although i didn’t love chinese food, it didn’t make me want to gag.
but a few meals in and i quickly began to dread each and every meal.
which let me tell you, is very unlike me!
between the beautifully disguised durian, fish eyes in the soup,
snake killed at the table in front of us and then turned into soup,
and much more that i can’t even bring to mind right now.
i decided i really hated the food here.
slowly over the years i’ve had a 180 degree change in my thinking.
and NOT because i now love durian, snake, or fish eyes!
but because i’ve, little by little, found an abundance of dishes that i love.
like the one above which is spicy fish with some sort of bean sprouts.
one thing that took me by surprise when i first started traveling here… perhaps it was just my naivety.
but that all the food is chinese food!
EVERY SINGLE MEAL!
which means no mexican, italian- you get my drift.
can you imagine?
anyhoo-hoo, thanks for stopping by and joining me on my travels!
one last thing, have you seen wild china???
