Wednesday 19th October, Its a beautiful sunny Autumn day today here in Nanjing, blue skies even. I've just been for a 7k run and am teaching later, after lunch.
This blog is just a quick catch up of stuff, I've got a few more photo's of my holiday that I took on my phone and forgot about and some other stuff.
This is the cake we shared with the kids in the hotel in BeyJomJen
The kids singing for us - a bit dark tho
In the same place we went to a new restaurant that had opened and was advertising itself as 'The real Kung Fu' what ever that means but the picture on the advertising looked nice (for the meat eaters that is) a bowl with meat and spices, lotus root and parsley. So we went in, they were really pleased as we were probably the first foreigners to go and they had just opened. Predictably they couldn't cater for me. Even though they also seemed to do hotpot with lots of vegetables and so on, but they cant seem to understand to give me the vegetables and leave the meat out.
Anyway I had a beer, some deep fried corn pattie things whilst Tom and Peggy ate their meal, which did look good and they enjoyed it. Although Tom was a bit suspicious of the meat and was sure it wasn't chicken and guessed it was frog. But he didn't want to know until he had finished. And sure enough when we asked the waitress later it was frog, or as they call it here, field chicken.
