We navigated the menu and found an assortment of dishes that we were comfortable eating, washed down with Jasmine tea and a cold beer. The streets were bustling when we ventured outside again at around 9.00pm. Queues were snaking along the narrow footpaths, waiting ...

They asked how I had ended up in Zhengzhou and the man actually chuckled when I told him where I was living and working, I think he felt a little bad for me, but found it ...
