We Don’t Eat Dog, but Love Mifan with Chopsticks and Hot Pot (Rick)
We are learning the customs and culture of China. It is always interesting, and sometimes strange to us. But then again, hot dogs on a bun would likely be strange to Chinese, as would stuffing business cards in your pocket without properly reading them. By traveling a lot, watching, reading expressions, and listening to our English speaking Chinese friends we are all learning about this wonderful world in which we live. Elizabeth and Anna are much better at deciphering words and expressions than we are, so this trip is reshuffling the family pecking order, with Dad at the bottom. BTW, mifan is rice and hot pot is a Sichuan food cooked in one pot, very spicy!
