I think now would be the time to tackle one of the best parts of my trip: the food. One of the things I love about food in China is it is fresh. Every dish has lots and lots of veggies and every spare patch of ground houses a small
It’s no secret I’m not a fan of Xiamen food. The specialty here is seafood, which is my least favorite kind of food in general. And the other food here, the common dishes like Japanese tofu, sweet and sour pork and others, just aren’t as good here as in Hangzhou.

You can’t go far in the tiny ancient city of Pingyao without hearing the street cry of a food vendor, and more often then not, Ryan and I would answer that call. Pingyao had some of the most unique street food I had never seen before, much of it bread
You might think buying a dirty sweet potato cooked on top of an oil drum would be disgusting. But it’s actually delicious! (You peel off the outside so it’s cleaner to eat then you think.) Just the thing to warm your belly on a cold day.
One of my favorite snacks is a piece of pineapple on a stick. I don’t remember if I noticed it when we first got here in September (then again, I stayed away from any un-peelable fruit back in the beginning) but now I am addicted. Seriously, every night I go
