By now it was mid afternoon, and we both were ready for lunch. We walked around a little, and then just picked a decent looking place, walked in and sat down. We lucked out! It turned out this was a “hot pot” restaurant, which I had wanted to try on this trip. Ordering was fun! They had two menus--one in Chinese with pictures, and one with “lost in translation English” and no pictures. As we had noticed donkey meat on the English menu--we wanted to make SURE we didn’t point to the wrong picture!
We braved the short walk back to our hotel, it was still windy but had calmed down a bit. The first thing I did when we got back was wash my face, rinse out my mouth--and I’m still crunching on grit--ick!
(We ordered room service!)
