... must be famous for dumplings because every one of these tiny restaurants sold them, so Matt and I wander in and are greeted by the owner and shown to our seats. So no one speaks English (once again, we don't expect them to), and we start pointing at the pictures of the dumplings on the menu. The guy starting saying meata, meata, and I figured out he was asking if we wanted meat dumplings, and I nodded profusely as I have been doing this whole ...
