Another food post

What is there to do in a small town with limited tourist activities? Why, eat, of course! In what seems to be the high class tradition here in Tumen, we went out to another cook your own food place. This time, it was hot pot, which instead of grilling the plates of raw meat, you boil them in a broth. Along with the meat, we got lots of non-pickled veggies, so I got my weekly dose of greens. (Mom, you'll be happy to know that bean sprouts are my new favorite vegetable). Hot pot is really quite an experience. Good times.

Besides the local cuisine (I am told hot pot is the most expensive meal in Tumen at a whopping $10.00 to [over]feed 3 people), I'm also getting a taste of the local transportation.

Sounds fun!
Also, since Wren had to break the RSS feed capability so his page would render in Firefox2, use this instead!

Bean Sprouts, eh? That's very interesting, but if I hear you say the same about tofu I'll know something has come unglued and I'll be sending those men in white coats over to round you up.
