Ahhhh, so we finally made it out of the hostel yesterday.
Tate and I went on a little hike and a walk around town, and only got a little wet! The hike ended pretty quickly. It was really beautiful but after about 15 minutes we got stuck in a mosquito infested bamboo jungle and I was NOT HAPPY.
Tate was enjoying himself!
It felt great to be outside though and get a little exercise. Post-hike was went looking for some fruit and veg because I was in need of some raw food. And it was DELICIOUS! I snacked on some yummy plums, a cucumber, and a carrot.
I told you it’s been raining A LOT!
After our walk it was time for dinner. We had an appetizer of grilled tofu on the way to the restaurant.
Tate and I each ate one square. It was tasty but oversalted and overoiled, like a lot of food in China.
Dinner was tasty and very nutritious. Tomato and egg soup, a thin plain broth with lots of tomatoes and about two eggs. Poached? Scrambled? Somewhere in-between… It is pretty boring really but when you’re eating out 2-3 times a day sometimes you need simple, and the broth was great on my sore throat. I also ate a big plate of stir fried veggies with shiitake mushrooms, great for the immune system!
We picked up some passionfruit from a street vendor on the way back to the hostel.
O.K., I know, a food photographer I am not…I’ll keep working on it!
(They were delicious though, a bit tart and really fragrant)
