Let’s recap the highlights …
On our way from Shanghai to Longquan we stopped in a small village looking for a place to eat
We learned that the man who made us dinner in the village is a war hero. He has an award in his restaurant for invading Vietnam. It was such an honor for all of us to meet him.
We visited an Art Institute today and the President had a special dinner set up for us afterward with some of the best Chinese dished you could have. Take a look at the pics! They treat us like celebs here.. I’ll be writing more about that soon : )
We all tried duck tongue today
Fight the Foreigners!
After we had dinner we decided to go downtown Lishui. We found this nightclub and decided to check it out. This guy was getting kicked out and he was fighting with security in the night club.
He was obviously intoxicated and he was pushing his way to get back it. We all found our way around him but because they let us into the nightclub he was mad. We all got in the elevator and he came inside yelling and trying to pull at us. We all had no idea what was going on. Our translator John pushed him out of the elevator and we proceeded to go upstairs. A couple minutes later a Chinese women escorted us out of the nightclub, down the back stairs and out the side of the building it was in. We were soo confused! We found John and he told us that that guy was mad that they were kicking him out because it was too crowded but at the same time they, "Were letting the foreigners in!" and kicking him out
My Last thought……Cheeseburger!!!!
I have been eating Chinese food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I know it’s only been three days but I sit quietly at dinner secretly hoping for a cheese burger; It never comes. The food here is amazing but to eat it three times a day everyday is slowly driving me crazy. When we explore the city streets tonight I’ll be searching for a McDonalds. Just thinking about melted cheese on a burger with a fluffy bun and crunchy French fries makes my mouth water!
LOVE YOU ALL,
